Welcome to what I believe is the wonderful world of Glenthorne Primary School.
Glenthorne is located at the heart of the village of Cheslyn Hay in Staffordshire.
There are many reasons why you may have been drawn to our web site.
You may be an existing parent wanting to find out more.
You may be a past parent or pupil wanting to see how things have changed.
You may be a prospective parent who is considering Glenthorne as a possible school for your child to attend.
You may have stumbled across us accidentally.
Whichever you are, I hope that what you will find answers your query. If not, please contact us and we’ll do our best for you.
This is a relatively new site and we are adding to it all the time, so please bear with us as we build it to the standard we wish it to be. If you have any ideas of what you would like to see on our site about Glenthorne, again please let us know.
I have been here since September 2006 and I find Glenthorne to be a very happy school, where the needs of all individuals are taken into account. We aim to give everybody the chance to develop in an atmosphere of care, fun and enjoyment in line with our new school motto:
"Living to Learn. Learning for Life."
Why don’t you go on the Tour of the School and see some of these things for yourself?
In the meantime, enjoy our site and thank you for visiting Glenthorne. I would love it if one day your virtual visit turned into a real one.
This year promises to be a very exciting one for all connected with Glenthorne where we aim to build on our successes last year.
At Glenthorne we believe that:
All children have a right to an education which offers an equal opportunity to every individual;
All children have a right to a broad and balanced curriculum, with tasks set appropriate to their needs;
All children have a right to a caring and stimulating environment in which they will develop a high self-esteem and feel happy, secure and included.
