Thorpe Primary School was officially opened in September 1993, following the amalgamation of the former Infant and Junior Schools. It is a primary school with an OFSTED registered Nursery on site, catering for pupils aged 3 to 11 years . A large proportion of the pupils transfer to the local secondary school, which is within walking distance of Thorpe Primary School.
Our school is situated in Netherton to the west of the City of Peterborough. The school is within walking distance of the city centre and situated on Atherstone Avenue. Nearby schools include the Jack Hunt Comprehensive School, which registers pupils aged 11 – 18 years. Our school has a close working relationship with our secondary community school and staff devise many opportunities for pupils to work together to facilitate closer liaison. Local places of worship serve the immediate local community.
Visits to our school are warmly welcomed by the Headteacher who will offer personal appointments to all parents enquiring about registration of their child/children. Time to meet together is arranged via Mrs Edwards, office personnel manager by telephoning or calling at the school.
