Our school is located next to a creek that runs between two mountain ranges. It is a picturesque drive up our valley, which takes approximately 20 minutes from Laidley.
We have two separate buildings splitting the composite classes for Prep to year 3 and years 4 to 6.
The school curriculum is supported by weekly visits from the teachers of Music, Physical Education and German.
Delivery of the Australian Curriculum across the whole school is one key priority of Thornton State School. We are also focused on developing high preforming staff to ensure students are receiving a high quality state school education.
The staff at Thornton State School are determined to develop and encourage the love of learning while instilling in our students the skills that enable them to become lifelong learners.
Thornton State School participates in the Small Schools Carnivals with three other similar sized school across two districts. This includes the Sports Carnival, Ball Games Day and Swimming Carnival.
