Preparing children for life's horizons




6% of the world’s population speak Spanish as their first language which is why Thornlow teach Spanish on the curriculum.  Spanish is taught by a specialist language teacher who inspires the pupils to learn in a unique and creative way.

To enhance learning, our incredibly strong links with Spain provide exchange opportunities.  Many of our boarding students are also Spanish therefore the spoken language is not only heard in the classroom but throughout the school - all day, every day.

Thornlow pupils also study: English and French.

  • "Following our trip to Longleat on Monday, the focus for the rest of the week has been on African Animals. In Spanish, pupils have been looking at literature for young children, and have designed their own African animal based books entirely in Spanish. They used some well-known children's books as inspiration for their designs."
