i go to this school and have been bullied since my first step into the school. i highly don’t recommend at all. they don’t help you with anything until they finally see that it’s escalated a lot more. some of the teachers have no clue what they’re even doing as well, yet they expect “good” grades.
What ever you hear from this school is just fake. I went to the school and they just like to sweep everything under the carpet. They are known for being the best in Bolton but I can honestly tell you loads of parents and students will disagree.
I was bullied, the things they did to me were awful and all Thornleigh would do is put my in isolation and tell me and my parents it was for my own safety. This went on for a very very long time my mum would ring up everyday begging them to do something but all they’d do is put me in isolation all day everyday. I was in year 10 at the time and the bullies were in year 11 (last year) so obviously the deapty head who is now the head, who is the problem, was worried about them failing their GCSEs because they were to fixated on me one day they were all in her office and I walked in and asked if I could join the conversation because it was obviously about me and we need to get things sorted. She then accused me of locking her in her office and being threatening which is a lie! (Anyway the lock on her door is literally like a bathroom door lock so if I did lock it she could of just twisted it back open) then she expelled me.
A few weeks prior to this the bullied came to my class to cause trouble and the teacher walked me to my dad and said “no matter what gets said, she’s not done anything wrong” this implies to me that he knew she was searching for a reason to get rid of me out of the school and that teacher knew it. There were so many incidents they tried to blame me for one was when I was walking out of the canteen a big group of the students came over and started being verbal then I walked away with my friend so they started throwing food at me and then pulling my hair - I got the blame!! My mum demanded she sees cctv but the answer was no, my mum then said she would get the police and I’m pretty sure they told her they didn’t have it anymore. ANOTHER THING they forged my mums signature lol.
