We are a co-educational school for pupils aged 3 - 13. Pupils can join us at any stage. Many join us for their 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 an unashamedly traditional approach to the vital importance of the basics; 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 both inside and outside the classroom - see "The Thornlow Times" or visit "Latest News" to read more!
Thornlow pupils study Spanish, French 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!
Termly boarding is available for UK and Non-UK residents and we would welcome you to visit our exquisitely decorated “home from home” boarding house. Caring and attentive house-parents ensure a strong sense of belonging and personal identity.
Over the half term holidays, the children have been extremely busy creating entries for our 4 in school competitions designed to celebrate World Book Day. We had a vast array of amazing book reviews, front cover designs, author reviews and 3-D models on display in the school hall today, and a lot of proud prize winners!Read Post
