On Wednesday 26th September 2018 we were proud to welcome Mr Jonathan Edwards CBE to Thorp Academy to officially open our new academy building. Mr Edwards was joined at the official opening by students, members of the local community, the Member of Parliament for Blaydon Liz Twist as well as the leadership of Northern Education Trust.
As part of the official opening Mr Edwards observed a performance inspired from the Greatest Showman from Performing Arts students at the academy as well as students engaging in collaborative learning in lessons that he visited.
Mr Edwards also got the chance to meet our Head Boy & Head Girl as well as Student Voice President and Vice-President.
