Thrumpton Primary Academy
Situated in the market town of Retford, the academy has a long history since first opening its doors in 1874 to children in the local area. Our new academy building opened in 2004 and provides the welcoming, bright and stimulating learning environment our Thrumpton children thrive in today.
Our vision is for all pupils to have great opportunities to develop, achieve and enjoy their education. We accomplish this through providing a wide, balanced and interesting curriculum, engaging pupils through great teaching, and ensuring that we provide appropriate support for all.
Celebrating diversity, recognising difference and supporting children to understand their place in the community is embraced within the academy, and British values are embedded within our curriculum.
The future for all pupils who attend Thrumpton Primary is bright, and we want our children to aspire to be the very best that they can be – our staff will support them in reaching for these goals.
