Much more than a school, Thorpe House in Gerrards Cross is a home from home where boys aged 3 to 16 feel confident, valued and empowered to achieve beyond their potential. We are passionate about the benefits of single sex education and believe that boys need to be taught in an environment that supports their style of learning.
As an independent boys’ school we pride ourselves in offering an education tailored to the way boys learn, whilst also providing a learning journey suited to the needs of each individual in our care.
Our educational approach encourages boys to be responsible members of their local and global community. Our staff are committed to providing boys with the encouraging guidance and support they need to achieve their individual potential.
Kindness, compassion, respect, politeness and resilience are traditional values that we expect all boys at Thorpe House to adhere to and our school motto, ‘To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield’, highlights the importance of hard-work and tenacity.
The environment in which the boys learn also plays a key role in their development and at Thorpe House we provide:
a warm, vibrant and caring family environment with welcoming staff who work in partnership with parents
a boy centred teaching and learning environment
small classes and excellent pastoral care.
We are proud of our reputation for providing learning experiences that are pivotal to the excellent GCSE grades our boys achieve at 16. However, whilst this is very important to us, it is not the sole measure of our accomplishments.
We are confident that by the time they leave us each pupil is a young man well prepared to cope with the many and varied challenges of modern life and ready to take his place in society.
