Thistle Hill Academy

Vision and Values

Our School Values of friendship, compassion, truth and respect are embedded throughout each school day.


The Stour Academy Trust has a clear vision to transform education.  We value children’s well-being and their education above all else, and put the needs of our children at the heart of all our decision making. 

Put simply – children come first.

At The Stour Academy Trust, we are driven by our commitment to the children’s well-being and education. Developing a love for lifelong learning and working closely with families to enable each child to achieve their potential. This is underpinned by our school values of Respect, Truth, Compassion and Friendship which provide a strong foundation for all that we do and achieve.

"Together on a journey to excellence” is at the foundation of everything we do. We recognise that all children have different strengths and abilities, so provide a broad and balanced curriculum to bring learning to life.
