Wales Street Primary School (opened 1 October 1891 as the 'Prince of Wales Park State School') has played a pivotal role in education in Thornbury. Although student academic performance is extremely important, the school aims to develop the whole child through a broad curriculum, interpersonal learning and a strong values based environment. Specialist teachers are provided; in the Arts, Italian, Music and Physical Education and educational activities include sport, choir and band, instrumental music lessons, drama, environment and chess clubs.

Over the past five years the socio-economic background of the students has risen considerably and enrolments increased to about 500 students. Priority for enrolment is given to students where Wales Street is their closest school.
