It has been brought to our attention that at least one school in our region has a significant level of absence possibly associated with an outbreak of the Norovirus.  If your son or daughter is absent through sickness please keep them at home for 48 hours after the sickness has passed.  We will talk with all our students, through tutors, to remind about personal hygiene (handwashing etc.).

Thirsk School Reunion

Thank you to everyone who attended or supported our reunion on 15th June.

It was a fantastic day with ex-staff and students from across the decades attending. You can read all about the day in a special edition of The Falcon, written by our student journalists who were in attendance.

Pictured here is Miss Lambden with three former members of staff, Joy Watson (nee Rainforth), Margaret Josephs, aged 95 and Rosalie Bowman, who were teachers at the school when it first opened. Mrs Josephs taught needlework, and Mrs Bowman taught Domestic science, starting in Thirsk in 1958. Mrs Josephs taught initially at Thirsk Grammar School, (now Sowerby Primary School), from 1948, before moving to Thirsk Grammar and Modern School in 1957.
