Thorpe House is much more than a school; it is a home from home where boys feel confident, valued and empowered to achieve beyond their potential.
We are the only all-through boys’ school in Buckinghamshire taking boys from Nursery at age three through to their GCSEs at age 16. As a successful, approachable independent school specialising in boys’ education, we understand the ways in which boys learn and we genuinely treat each boy as an individual. We understand that boys will be boys and are often lively, opinionated, physical and competitive; we harness these qualities and produce well-educated, well-mannered and well-rounded, young men. Every boy at Thorpe House is unique, some are academics, some excel in sport and others in the performing arts; each boy is different and it is that difference that we nurture and value.
At Thorpe House, you buy into much more than a school; we have created a home from home that provides a caring environment in which each boy is treated in such a way that he feels secure and an important member of the whole school body, thus allowing his learning to flourish. Our boys are at the heart of our school and are taught traditional British values such as dignity and integrity, tolerance and compassion, self-respect and respect for others and to be resilient and confident, always giving of his best.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of your son joining us, please do not hesitate to contact us and experience for yourself why Thorpe House is the first choice for our parents and their sons.
I look forward to meeting you and your son in the near future.
I am looking forward to working with our Headmaster Mr Ayres, our Deputy Head Mr Walker, our Head of Seniors Mr Wells, all the staff, fellow prefects and peers to keep moving the school forward in a positive direction.
Since joining the school in Year 7 in 2013, Thorpe has become a second home to me thanks to the friendly and welcoming staff and pupils. Due to its small size, the teachers have the time to really get to know us and find out what works best for us so we can get the most out of our studies. The school’s size also means I have made lots of friends who all differ in character and personality leading to some very memorable moments! For this reason, I believe it is the people at Thorpe who make my time at school so enjoyable and I am sure I am not alone in saying that.
Not only has the school given my peers and I a wide-ranging education, but it has also offered us a variety of day visits and trips, many of which have been abroad. To date I have been on a moving trip to Auschwitz in Poland as well as a World War I Battlefields trip to Belgium and France. I have also taken part in numerous extra-curricular activities such as sailing, guitar lessons, choir, school plays and public speaking competitions all of which I have thoroughly enjoyed, and have enabled me to develop other areas of my character.
What makes Thorpe House School unique? Everything. Since joining Thorpe, I have been supported in all aspects of school life, both in the classroom and out on the sports pitches. Thanks to the exceptional teaching in every department and its pastoral care, I believe Thorpe House has been and is a fantastic place to learn.
