Kirkwood Hospice Reindeer Run 2021


Our whole school participated in this year's fundraising Reindeer Run for Kirkwood Hospice.

Kirkwood supplied us with antlers and noses and we ran our daily mile around the recreation ground after being sponsored by our families and friends!

Thank you to all for your support of this local charity.

KS2 Sports Hall Athletics


Our amazing Thurstonland team gave their all on Tuesday at the Sports Hall Athletics and their efforts were rewarded with 3rd place! A brilliant result for such a small school as ours.

Well done everyone, and thank you to all the parents and siblings who came to support us too.

An especially BIG thank you to our PTA who have bought new team t-shirts for all year groups to wear at sporting events. Thank you. J

Yr 2/3 Girls Football


A brilliant performance by our Y2/3 Girls’ Football team at the Shelley Pyramid tournament. They played 5 games - won 3, drew 1, lost 1 - and finished joint runners-up, which is another amazing result for our school. The girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were treated to an appearance from Michael Hefele of Huddersfield Town! 

Well done girls – you were all A-MA-ZING!
