Welcome to Thornlow Preparatory School
We believe it is a school which will prepare children for life's vast horizons, which creates an atmosphere that is full of purpose and activity drawing pupils from many backgrounds.
Small class sizes enable us to devote attention to the individual's academic needs and welfare.We take time to develop imagination, creativity, initiative and problem solving, based whenever possible on direct and relevent experience.
F irm foundations for your child’s future are laid at Thornlow Preparatory School. From the moment your child joins us, he or she is recognised as an individual. We believe that these early days should be happy ones when enthusiasm for learning becomes second nature.
Sporting activities at Thornlow include Rugby, Netball, Cross Country, Cricket, Athletics and Swimming. During the summer there are opportunities to go Sailing.Through small, well equipped classes and a traditional curriculum our pupils develop confidence and skills to accompany them through life. Creativity in the fields of Art, Drama and Music are an important part of school life. Pupils participate in annual performances and concerts.Past productions have included The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Toad of Toad Hall and The Railway Children. An unique feature of the school is its Sea Shanty Choir. The choir has performed at different venues in Weymouth, Dorchester and the Festival of the Sea in Portsmouth.
