• At Thriftwood, we are looking forward to the Summer Term and being able to get outdoors.  Students will be busy tending the allotments, the wildlife areas and participating in challenging residential trips and many community visits.

    Congratulations to Year 7 pupils who came first place in a competition run by Wyevale Garden Centre, Braintree. The prize included allotment equipment to the value of £1000 and a £50 gardening voucher. Well Done!

    CONGRATULATIONS to Nina Gorman. She is now a British National Dance Champion in her own right! She also earned accolades for her under 12s  dance troupe who also became National Champions in Blackpool on the 15th/16th April. How lucky we are to have her skills at Thriftwood. Well done Nina, we're so proud of you!

    On Friday 5th May 2017 the old style £5 notes will cease to be legal tender. Please note that the School & College will therefore be unable to accept the old style £5 notes after that date - Finance Department
