Thurston Community College is a co-educational upper school in Thurston, Suffolk in the United Kingdom.

Constructed in the 1970s, it is the largest school in West Suffolk, with over 1,400 pupils aged 13–18 drawn from the local village and surrounding largely rural communities. Facilities include a community library, a large sixth form centre and an Air Training Corps building. It has a total staff of around 170.

The school's houses are named after famous British people with Suffolk connections, including Thomas Gainsborough and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson. It is a specialist science college.[1]

In its most recent Ofsted inspection report in 2013, the school was rated Good.[2]
