History

In 1857, a grammar school was established in the village of Thorold, but it was not until 18 years later, in 1875, that the land on which the present high school stands was purchased. The site, bound by Ormond, St. David and Carleton Streets, was purchased for $1856.77 from Dr. Rolls of Thorold, and the building was erected at a cost of $6000. In 1928, a seven-room and gymnasium addition was constructed, and the building was officially opened on the eve of the graduation ceremonies held on November 22, 1929.

Over the years, the school has undergone a series of additions, the most recent of which was in 1967. In 2006, T.S.S. benefited from being part of a Schools Renewal Project. The project involved over $3 million in construction, including new windows and an improved electrical system.

The school has successful athletic programs, despite its relatively small talent pool of just over 600 students. The Golden Eagles Football team has won 5 regional AA/AAA championships competing in the NRHSAA. Thorold Secondary is also highlighted with an outstanding Arts department, with TSS band headlining many charitable concerts, and TSS drama presenting multiple plays. The Golden Eagles Improv team competes in the Canadian Improv Games, and ranked in the Top 10 at the 2019 CIG National Competition at the Arts Center in Ottawa.
