Thomas Hinderwell Primary Academy

We will ensure that all children are nurtured, challenged and inspired so that they achieve the best outcomes during their time at our school and contribute positively to society.

Principal's Welcome

Mrs C Webster

Thomas Hinderwell is more than a school, it is a family. We have high expectations that require us to inspire our pupils to be aspirational by aiming higher, working harder and learning more than has ever been asked of them. We want every child who attends THPA to be successful by building a real community that share core values and supports each other by using the ‘every lesson matters’ mantra.

We accept that every child is different, so we provide a unique, and personalised, educational experience. This includes an exciting curriculum, which centres on innovative experiences throughout the year to scaffold learning upon.
