Thornbury has an excellent choice of schools – most within 10 minutes walking distance of Morton Way.
When it comes to education, families moving to Thornbury will find they really are spoilt for choice. There are no less than five primary schools within easy walking distance, including Manorbrook Primary School and the newly re-built Gillingstool Primary School boasting state-of-the-art facilities together with its own swimming pool.
Secondary-school children are just as well catered for at The Castle School, which also has a thriving Sixth Form. This is the first ever Bright Futures Sixth Form in the country, making The Castle Sixth Form part of the highly successful university sector Bright Future Societies’ network.
Further afield, there is the South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS), City of Bristol College and, of course, the University of the West of England.
