Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form is large and successful, rated ‘Outstanding’ in all categories at the time of its last inspection.

Our ‘Success for All’ philosophy is based upon a set of clear values:

  • We come to school to work and learn.
  • Every individual is important.
  • We will always try to do our best.
  • We will work to promote our community.


The person chosen to lead the next stage of our School’s development will understand how to deliver these values.  The new Principal will:

  • have a fundamental determination to maintain and further develop a culture that enables students and staff to embrace learning and personal development;
  • recognise, celebrate and develop the contribution made by every student, every member of staff, every Governor and our local community to move the School forward;
  • have the ambition, drive and determination to get the best from everyone and expect more of everyone than individuals may think is possible; and
