About the School

Thorpe Hesley Primary School

At Thorpe Hesley Primary School, we constantly strive to be the best that we can be and give our children the best opportunities and experiences that we can. 

We are very proud of our Creative Curriculum which our staff have carefully developed with our children and our context in mind. Our pupils are incredible citizens who are taught and encouraged to care about each other and about their education. We are very proud of the lovely work they create and of their outstanding attainment which is consistently well above local and national averages. 

We are a friendly, larger than average, Outstanding school, catering for around 560 pupils from Early Years Foundation Stage to Year 6. We have our own Nursery as well as comprehensive wrap around care provision, including a breakfast and after school club. 

Every member of staff in school, as well as our Advisory Group, are fully committed to giving the school and our pupils their best. We are very lucky to have not only the best staff in Rotherham and, indeed, The World but also the best children and families!
