YEARS 3 to 6

Girls join the Preparatory department from Year 3, age 7. We work hard to get the very best out of every child and aim that she gets the very best out of Thornton in return.  

The combination of exceptional care with inspirational and innovative teaching ensures that a Thornton Prep education is remarkable.  Innovative teaching methods have been adopted including the mastery approach inspired by Shanghai Mathematics,  Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL - teaching humanities through the French language) and the Creative Curriculum, which combines subjects together and teaches them through topics.

Thornton will give your daughter all the opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom  to become a fully rounded, successful and, above all, happy person.
