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.
