We educate the whole boy at Thorpe House, which means academic achievement whilst important, isn’t our only goal. All boys are expected to display good manners, respect one another and those in the wider community, and to think about those less fortunate than themselves. One of the ways in which we do this is by encouraging them to give and to raise money for charitable causes.
