#PrettyTough is a pioneering student-led group in the Upper School. Their goal is to raise awareness and promote gender equality and diversity within our school community and beyond.
To mark #Pride month, students worked together to organise and participate in a number of ‘rainbow’ themed activities including mixed netball and football matches, and a sale of sweet treats. They had lots of fun and raised an amazing £460 for Outhouse East - the local charity supporting the LGBTQ+ community in Southend. #Pride2021 #thorpehallschool #equality #diversity ...

A huge well done to the Year 5 and 6 pupils who enjoyed a great afternoon participating in the Junior ISA Athletics event on Friday. It was brilliant to see so many THS medalists, and even better to see most pupils achieve new personal bests. Congratulations, everyone! #isasport #isaathletics #THS #thorpehallschool #jumphighrunfastthrowfar #essexmums #southendschools #personalbests ... See MoreSee Less
Tomorrow is #CleanAirDay 2021, and we are asking Thorpe Hall families and staff to consider giving the car the day off tomorrow and to walk, cycle or scoot to school instead. We'll be monitoring air pollution around the school in Science Lessons with Year 7 pupils this week too - and will let you know what we find.

This week, Lower School pupils enjoyed a high-flying, record-breaking virtual STEM day, hosted by the Education Team from The Royal Air Force Museum, Cosford. Not surprisingly, the focus of the day was on flight. Pupils learnt about helicopters before making and testing paper spinners. They watched a video about the RAF Parachute Team and then made mini parachutes themselves. Learning about the RAF fighter jets was a big highlight of the day and the children were set a paper plane flight distance challenge. They had to make a paper plane, test its aerodynamics and beat a flight distance of 14 metres, the record held by one of the RAF engineers - and 6G did it! Thank you to the RAF Cosford team for such a fun and exciting learning experience.
