At Thorngrove we like to think that we prepare children for the next step in their education. It is never easy. In fact choosing the right senior school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make.
At Thorngrove we believe in giving parents the choice. In order to make considered decisions you need as much information as possible. To this end, we hold a Future Schools Event every two years. We invite over 25 senior school Heads to come along and talk about their schools. Parents are encouraged to make follow up visits to a short list of schools and then come to discuss the possible options with the Headmaster. Every child is an individual and it is paramount to match up the needs of the child with the right school.
In addition to this event, the Headmaster also holds an evening to discuss the benefits of remaining at Thorngrove for the top two years. There are also Heads coffee mornings throughout the year where a senior school Head chats informally to a small number of parents in the Head’s office.
Destination schools in the recent past have included: Abingdon, Ardingly, Bradfield, Bryanston, Cheltenham, Clayesmore, Dauntsey's, Leighton Park, Lord Wandsworth College, Marlborough, Millfield, Monkton Combe, Pangbourne, Radley, St. Edward's, St Gabriel's, St. Helen and St. Katharine, Sherborne, Sherborne Girls and Tudor Hall.
