Mrs Thornton has over 20 years of teaching experience. Having been the wife of an Army Officer for the early part of her career, she has worked in many different locations, including Oman and France. However, a more settled civilian life has enabled her to live in a fixed abode and remain at FSM for the past eight years.

She joined us a Year 4 class teacher but with a love of literature and language has recently moved into the role of Head of The English Faculty, where she enjoys teaching pupils in years 6-8.

Outside of school, she spends her time: travelling, spectating at her children’s sports fixtures, reading (obviously!) and attempting the odd bit of cookery.
