Welcome to Thurlton Primary School and thank you so much for your interest in our school.

Thurlton Primary is a warm and caring community that combines a modernised Victorian building that has been extended with very modern classrooms and facilities.

As a team we constantly strive to achieve the very best for you and your child to create successful and happy children. Education is a partnership between home and school and we place a great deal of emphasis on our relationship with parents. We believe that children learn best when home and school work together for their benefit.

On the 1st September 2017 we joined with the Clarion Academy Trust, Hobart High School being it's founder member. As the majority of our children go on to attend Hobart High School this partnership will strengthen the educational experiences of the children attending Thurlton Primary. 

Thurlton Primary mission statement

We strive to enable all the children to reach their full potential in all areas of learning.
We do this in an atmosphere of mutual respect, kindness and understanding of each others differences
in a challenging, stimulating and safe environment.
