We are proud of being the only Church of England Voluntary Controlled Secondary School in Hull; this gives us a distinctive Christian ethos. However, we welcome all children, regardless of the religious affiliation, who wish to share our values.
Being one of the smaller secondary schools in the city we are able to offer a supportive culture which enables us to treat the children as individuals. We do not accept bullying, violence, or putting others down, and have a well founded Behavior Policy.
In our school all children have the opportunity to deliver their potential, be it academic, sporting or creative. We offer extra support for the more able through our Gifted and Talented Programmes and those experiencing difficulties through Learning Support.
Our facilities are improving year on year with a new Canteen, a new purpose built City Learning Centre for ICT and a new Textiles Room. Further improvements, include a new Sports Hall ready for September 2005, giving us some of the best facilities in the city.
We have developed a climate of continuous improvement and every year we see a positive trend of improvements in our examination results.
Archbishop Thurstan School sets the highest academic standards through the excellence of its teaching, which was recognised by OFSTED in October 2001.
We work in close partnership with parents so that every student achieves their best and therefore is well prepared to meet the demands of a rapidly changing world
