Thornton College is a leading independent Catholic day and boarding school for girls. It is one of the most successful non-selective schools in the UK and offers a warm and nurturing educational environment alongside a rigorous and exciting curriculum.

There are just over 450 children in our school from Pre-prep to Sixth Form.  Over 60 girls board on a weekly or termly basis and many more take advantage of our occasional boarding option (when beds are available).

The School is set within 25 acres of beautiful parkland just outside Buckingham and within easy reach of Milton Keynes, and conveniently located between Oxford & Cambridge. 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. Thornton is a school that parents and girls can trust to deliver the highest standards of education coupled with outstanding pastoral care. We are dedicated to blending academic excellence with a richness of opportunity beyond the classroom. 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. Our academic results are testament to the way the girls are challenged and motivated to give their best in all they do.

There is an exciting School Development Plan, which has the continued strengthening of the school’s academic standing as the priority. Following the successful opening of our award winning Science and Prep Classroom building and our Expressive Arts Studio, we opened a brand new Sixth Form department in September 2016.  

The School is committed to promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All posts will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
