At Thornhill Community Academy we welcome everyone into our community and endeavour to make available inclusive provisions to ensure that all students, including those identified with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) can enjoy and benefit from a broad and balanced education with access to the National Curriculum at an appropriate level so that they can achieve their full potential.
