Weekly Newsletter – Website/Social Media, Uniform and Important Information

Dear Parents/Carers

Website/Social Media, Uniform and Important Information

Academy Website

As you may have noticed we launched our new academy website last week (www.thistleyhough.org.uk), which contains lots of useful information for parents and carers including term dates, uniform information, THActive club timetables and ways to support your child’s learning etc.  Please have a look around our new website for all of this, and further interesting and important information.

Thistley Hough Social Media

Regular updates and Academy News articles are also published on our social media channels. These can be found at:

  • Facebook – Thistley Hough Academy
  • Twitter – @thistleyhough

Please follow us to stay up to date with all academy events.


Please could I take this opportunity to remind all parents/carers that students should attend the Academy in full school uniform at all times. Full academy uniform information can be found on our website at www.thistleyhough.org.uk and is included on the reverse of this letter for your convenience.

Fidget Spinners 

We have seen an increase in the number of students bringing Fidget Spinners into the Academy. The Academy policy is that students are not allowed to have them in school unless they have been given permission by our SENCO, Mr Paul Hughes. Staff will confiscate spinners from any student who does not have specific permission to use one whilst in school.

With best wishes

Holly Hartley
