Thurston Community College is a thriving mixed comprehensive school which boasts a strong sense of community, a supportive, caring ethos and a positive, friendly atmosphere.  Thurston Community College offers an exciting learning environment, where students display a positive attitude to learning and make good progress.

“The behaviour of pupils is good. Pupils enjoy school and say that they feel well supported.  Most groups of pupils, including the most able and those who are disadvantaged, now make strong progress from their starting points.” (Ofsted, March 2018)

Staff work collaboratively, share a common sense of purpose and are relentless in the pursuit of outcomes of the highest quality for every student. 

“Staff morale is high and most staff are positive about the leadership and management of the school. This is because leaders have provided them with high-quality training and supported their development well at all levels.  Newly qualified and trainee teachers are passionate advocates of the school and its pupils. School leaders support them well and subject leaders develop their teaching skills through regular mentoring and effective support.” (Ofsted, March 2018)

Thurston Community College enjoys a rural location with free parking and convenient transport links to Cambridge, Ipswich and London.
