Thriftwood School & College are asking for the support and understanding of everyone in order to help minimise the risk of COVID-19.

Thriftwood continues to take guidance from Public Health England.  

We apologise for not being able to give you our usual warm welcome, but we must take the current situation very seriously and look after the welfare of our pupils and staff. With that in mind, we are following the guidelines and will only be accepting external visitors who provide a professional service for our young people (e.g. social workers and healthcare professionals). Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to offer prospective parental visits. However, please visit the virtual tours on the school and college sites respectively. 

If you have any questions, please contact us via email to: - or
