We offer scholarships for students entering Year 7, Year 9 and Tear 12 in the Senior School.

Our Academic Scholarship Examinations are for students currently in Year 6 and Year 8, looking for entry to Thornton into Year 7 or Year 9. See the Sixth Form section for information on Sixth Form entry.  

Scholarship examinations for entry in September 2018 will take place in March 2018. If you would like your daughter to be entered for the examinations, she will need to be registered and spend a trial day with us before February half term.

Contact Mrs Claire Ballantyne for further information


Thornton holds scholarship examinations every March for Year 6 and Year 8 internal and external girls, and if successful, a scholarship may be awarded for education in our Senior School. 

Successful candidates qualify for a reduction in fees. Once granted, the scholarship operates for a period of five years. It is understood that pupils accepting a scholarship will remain at the School throughout the period of statutory schooling. 

Candidates take two examinations: one in Mathematics and one in English.
