The pattern of individual school terms and holidays for primary, middle and secondary schools
vary slightly from school to school, since
of the 195 days are used for staff development.
We advise you to check the
school's own website
or contact them direct for confirmation.

We had a superb Thorner’s Friday FUNDraiser! Adults enjoyed Traditional or Fizzy High Teas (scones, cakes, sandwiches, tea, coffee or prosecco!) with beautiful live piano music (thank you, Becky), and children had a choice of two movies with a snack bag! There were super raffle prizes, including a bike donated by Bridport Cycles – thank you. The event raised nearly £525 for our Early Years outdoor provision. Thank you to all who supported us, donated prizes and goodies and helped to run the event. Thank you also to Clare, Kate and Caroline who kept the drinks flowing! A big thank you to staff who baked cakes and scones, made sandwiches, brought in raffle prizes, served at table, helped set up and tidy away and made sure the children were safe in their very own ‘Thorner’s Cinema’. A child’s comment: “That was the best movie night ever!” made my day! Look out for future events!
We received about 20 bags of donations for the Food Bank - thank you all.
We had a lovely Harvest service - the children had prepared songs, poems, prayers and apple juice!
