About Us

West Thornton Primary School joined the Inspire Partnership Trust family of schools on the 1 April 2020. The school comprises of two sites, one on Canterbury Road and other on Rosecourt Road, both in Croydon.  We serve a diverse community and have just under 1000 pupils on roll.


West Thornton Primary School is a vibrant learning community, where we offer children a fully rounded education, which includes an exciting creative curriculum and a highly inclusive, supportive environment.

We educate children from Reception to Year 6, on 2 sites, working closely with our partner schools in the Inspire Partnership as well as schools in our wider local community.  

Partnership with parents and carers is at the centre of everything we do. Through regular newsletters, workshops, coffee mornings and celebration events, families and staff work hand in hand. Parents are learners too and our vision extends to providing a range of adult learning experiences that will transform and regenerate our community beyond recognition.  Together, everyone achieves more.

We look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure every pupil at the school achieves the best possible outcomes, enjoys their learning and aspires to be the best.
