We are a co-educational school for pupils aged 3 - 13yrs. Pupils can join us at any stage a few just for Years 7 & 8. Our pupils go on to secure scholarships at prestigious public secondary schools, or their state equivalents such as The Thomas Hardye School. "ItsLearning" allows parents to stay in touch with their children's lessons on a daily basis.
We take a traditional approach to education; mental arithmetic, times tables, good grammar, spelling and punctuation. We ensure we tailor learning to the specific needs of the pupil. We strive to balance excellence with inclusion - see "Year Book 13-14", "Year Book 14-15" or visit "Latest News" to read more!
Thornlow pupils study Spanish, French, Mandarin and English. All languages are timetabled on the curriculum and are taught by specialist language teachers. To enhance learning, our incredibly strong links with Spain provide exchange opportunities. Our traditionally English classic school uniform, exudes quality, just like our language department!
During the past few months we have had to consider seriously the future of Thornlow Preparatory School Limited. It has become apparent that, for both geographic and economic reasons the school cannot continue to flourish for long, situated as it is at present.Read Post
