Thornwood is an area of Glasgow, lying north of the River Clyde. It is situated on the river between Partick and Whiteinch, with Broomhill to the north. It was part of the burgh of Partick until the absorption of that burgh into the expanding city of Glasgow in 1912.


Thornwood Primary School is the primary school which serves the local area. The building also houses Thornwood Nursery Class and Rosepark Learning Centre, which had changed its name at early April 2010, to GDSS (General Dyslexic Social Services)which is a special needs school. All of these services are operated by Glasgow City Council's Education Services.

Thornwood Primary is one of four primary schools associated with Hyndland Secondary School, and is part of the Hyndland New Learning Community. Thornwood Primary School associates Hyndland Secondary School, alongside with Broomhill Primary School, Whiteinch Primary School and Hyndland Primary School. All of those four schools are close to Thornwood, but mainly Thornwood Primary School, as it is the closest.


There is a park in front/across Thornwood Primary School, which has been refurbished to an astonishing park, with an astroturf pitch, a separate fenced playground which includes a climbing frame with a slide above it, a tyre swing, two baby swings, a roundabout and some benches. Further over in the Park, there is a picnic area with good benches and tables. Moreover, the place is full of grassy hills and green surroundings. The park is also close to shops and a police station. There is also a park called Victoria Park nearby and Neasby Park, but they are more over to the side of Broomhill. There is also a Broomhill Shopping Centre in Broomhill.

Thornwood is located in Partick.
