Welcome to Thornbury Primary School

At Thornbury Primary School we provide a rich, diverse and sustainable learning environment, which recognises that all learners are individuals.


In Mainstream at Thornbury Primary School, we work towards a common goal of a differentiated learning approach as we recognise that all learners are individuals.

While Literacy and Numeracy are core aspects in the Victorian Curriculum, we also believe that learners should express creativity, through various means towards life long learning experiences.


The Steiner program at Thornbury Primary School offers a dynamic and creative curriculum based on the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner. The program is aligned with the Victorian Curriculum and is available from Foundation to Grade 6.

Indigenous Studies

The Indigenous Studies program is unique to our school and gives Thornbury Primary students the opportunity to study one of the oldest living cultures in the world.

Thornbury Primary Arts Festival

The Arts Festival is a whole school community event that recognises the creative and diverse arts created by the students of Thornbury Primary School.

Friday Afternoon Garden Parties

Each Friday, everyone is invited to come along to our Garden Party – from 3pm in the Food Garden – to get involved in planting, crafting and getting our hands dirty.
