Miss Thornicroft




I am Head Teacher here at Springside Primary and have been in this position for seven years.

I have been teaching for 26 years. I spent my newly qualified years, in Oldham where I was a Science co-ordinator. I then moved to a school in Rochdale to co-ordinate Science and Assessment. I very quickly became interested in becoming a Senior Leader so I moved to another Rochdale school where I was Deputy Headteacher and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDCO) for 12 years.

I came to Springside as Headteacher as I was really interested in supporting both children and families to get the best out of their time at this school. 

In my spare time I enjoy taking my two nephews out on day trips and I enjoy Zumba classes.
