Thorns Collegiate Academy, based in Dudley in the West Midlands, is home to 900 students and 60 members of staff.
The Academy takes the best of traditional education – strong teaching, rich academic knowledge and a caring Form Tutor system – and adds in the best of cutting-edge technology. Strong links with the wider Trust and their partnerships with organisations such as Microsoft as well as continued investment makes the school a leading place for innovative learning.
This all comes together in the L4L (Literacy for Life) curriculum, encouraging students to aim higher, see further and be concerned for all.
