About the school

The School is set within 25 acres of beautiful parkland just outside Buckingham and within easy reach of Milton Keynes, Bicester and Northampton. 

Small, vibrant and close knit boarding community of approximately sixty girls aged 8 – 18 years. This means that girls can board with us at prep school age right through to Sixth Form if they wish, without having to make a transition between two schools.

Boarding at Thornton College is arranged by age groups with girls of the same or similar age sharing a bedroom. From Year 11 to Year 13 (girls aged 15+), girls have single bedrooms (subject to availability).

Each group of boarding girls is cared for by our boarding house 'parents’, with a very experienced and dedicated Housemistress and Assistant Housemistress in charge of all aspects of the health and happiness of the girls in their house.
