Thurston Community College

Establishing a school which boasts a strong sense of community, a supportive, caring ethos and a positive, friendly atmosphere does not happen overnight.  We have a proven track record of success; we know what we are doing.  Our staff have a wealth of experience in supporting and challenging young people.  However, we are not complacent; year on year we reflect critically on our performance and implement strategies to ensure that the College continues to go from strength to strength.

We firmly believe that every child matters.  We are relentless in our pursuit of outcomes of the highest quality for every Thurston student whether success is measured by academic achievement, sporting excellence, brilliance in music and drama or acquiring the skills and qualities to live a happy and fulfilled life. Our students are taught to believe in themselves, to take ownership of their lives and to aspire to fulfil their dreams.

Our guiding principles are “inspire; empower; achieve”.  Our ambition is that every student will be inspired by learning, empowered to seize life’s opportunities and leave Thurston Community College as a happy, confident and well-rounded young person, having achieved their full potential.
