There are just under 400 children in our Pre-Prep, Prep and Senior departments. Our Nursery section is co-eductional from boys and girls aged 2.5+ and we are girls only from reception upwards. Over 50 girls board on a weekly or termly basis and many more take advantage of our occasional boarding option.
The School is set within 25 acres of beautiful parkland just outside Buckingham and within easy reach of Milton Keynes, Bicester and Northampton. We are a Catholic school with a strong Christian ethos. Children of all Christian denominations, of other faiths and of no faith are welcome in our school. All are equally valued and all are equally important.
Pupils receive an outstanding education and make excellent progress at Thornton. Your daughter would be encouraged and expected to achieve her personal best in all she does. We believe that teaching and learning should be both challenging and enjoyable for pupils of all abilities and we aim for the highest possible standards. Whether she is the most gifted academically, a good all-rounder or needs additional help in some areas, your daughter will receive a stimulating and rewarding educational experience suited to her needs. Our academic results are testament to the way the girls are challenged and motivated to give their best in all they do.
