Thetford Academy is committed to diversity and strives to build, maintain, and promote a culture of equity and inclusion. The curriculum challenges students to examine issues of diversity and encourages them to engage in active learning. Students reflect critically on social problems as they develop the skills to succeed in an environment where diversity is acknowledged, respected, and celebrated.
