Welcome to Thistley Hough Academy – a community school in the heart of Penkhull, Stoke-on-Trent. Our academy prides itself on its warm and welcoming ethos in which every student is valued as an individual. This is an important part of our identity and this ideology will always remain at the heart of our work. As an academy we believe passionately in supporting all students to achieve their absolute best.

Thistley Hough was first opened in 1938 and over the last seven decades scores of local children have been successfully educated at Thistley Hough. We are proud of our history and we remain dedicated to the same vision - to provide the best possible education for local children of all backgrounds, abilities and beliefs. Over 35 languages are spoken at Thistley Hough and we value and respect all faiths and cultures.We believe in celebrating success and we want our students to be recognised for the amazing things that they achieve. I have very high expectations of our academy and I am clear that all students must be aware of exactly what is expected of them.

In order to be an outstanding academy it is my belief that there are several key things that we must ensure are in place every single day:

• Quality teaching, academic support and enrichment that delivers excellent results and engages students

• The highest expectations of behaviour, uniform and student conduct in order to create a calm and productive working environment

• Outstanding and fully inclusive pastoral care and academic guidance

• Provision tailored to the personal needs of all students as individuals so that they may all achieve personal excellence.

You can be assured that we are relentlessly focused on achieving these goals. We believe passionately in working closely with our community in order to ensure that every one of our students is cherished and nurtured. We want to work in partnership with all stakeholders to ensure success for our current students whilst continuing to strive for an outstanding school of the future.
