Thornton College

Girls boarding and day school

“A happy child is a successful child.”

It takes very little time to fall in love with Thornton College. It is an endearing school. We believe that a happy child is a successful child and it is this belief, together with the core values of respect and tolerance of others, that make Thornton such a wonderful place to be educated.

Regularly featured in The Times Top (small) Schools, it is one of the top performing non selective schools in the UK.

Thornton offers a perfect blend of academic excellence, outstanding pastoral care and huge opportunity both inside and outside the classroom. Of the 350 girls, there is a closeknit boarding community. As an all-through school, boarders can join us age 7 and stay with us until age 18, when they leave for university. This continuity ensures that students are happy, settled and achieve the best possible results with minimal disruption. The School opens a brand new Sixth Form in September 2016 and is fast becoming one of the leading STEM schools in the UK.

Thornton is a Catholic school, but students of all faiths and of no faith are welcome. It is situated on the Buckinghamshire / Northamptonshire border, just outside Milton Keynes and is easily accessible from London Heathrow (just 100 KM).
