Welcome to Thornton State School

We are a small school who pride ourselves on being kind, considerate, helpful and respectful.

Our school motto is 'Giving our best'.

We are located in the Lockyer Valley outside the small township of Laidley which is approximately half way between Toowoomba and Ipswich. We are a rural agricultural community with many farms and dairies operating nearby.​​

We also have a bus that operates from the local township of Laidley, through Mulgowie to Thornton.
