Our Christian Ethos

Here at All Saints’ Thurlestone, we are a Church of England Academy and we are proud of our Christian distinctiveness which is threaded throughout everything we do.

Our academy lives and breathes the Church of England’s vision of John 10:10, that every child will flourish and that they will achieve the very best they can, fulfilling their dreams and ambitions. It is a place where all are valued as individuals and as God’s children. The whole child matters to God and we invest time to nurture children’s intellectual developments as well as their many, other gifts.

As a Church of England academy, we warmly welcome those who live by all faiths, and no faith, as partners with whom we build our academy and Trust community.

Our Church Community

We are proud of our connections with our local churches, All Saints’ Thurlestone and All Saints’ South Milton.

Father Daniel is our Church of England priest and he leads our weekly Thursday morning Collective Worship which happens here in school and at our church.  He loves to spend time in school meeting the children and seeing what happens in the classroom (when COVID-19 restrictions allow).

In addition to this, Father Daniel is the Chair of the Ethos Committee for the South Hams Hub.

"It is a great privilege to work in this school and to see the children grow and develop, nurtured by our school and church communities."
