Welcome to Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form

Welcome to our School. I would like to take this opportunity to share with you some of our beliefs and why our motto is ‘Excellence For All’.

Ofsted judged our school as being outstanding, providing a very positive environment for learning which successfully supports the excellent academic and personal development of our students. We are very proud that they recognised not only the outstanding academic success but also our belief that the education for each student extends far beyond this, as they grow as individuals.



So what is an outstanding school?

Somewhere where everyone wants to come and be part of the learning process. Where every individual really matters, their achievements are celebrated and where opportunities exist both in class and in extra-curricular activities. Equally, each student needs to feel safe and happy, knowing that they will be encouraged and supported in their growth.

Partnerships are at the core of our work, with the student very much at the centre. We are part of The Yare Education Trust and we maintain close links with parents, feeder schools, employers and the community at large. Our achievements are based on us following a simple set of guidelines:

    • Every individual is important.


    • We come to school to work and learn.


    • We will always try to do our best.


    • We will work to promote our community.


Our school has a successful record. We now invite you to be part of our future achievements as, together, we aim to bring success to each individual student.

Mrs P Bignell
– Principal
