Every pupil, both day and boarding, is placed in one of the three school Houses; Ingleton, Tyrell or Cavendish. The Houses are named after famous families who resided at Thornton Manor in former centuries.
Each House nominates a Captain and Vice Captain representing the Junior and Senior schools. Inter-house competitions in sport and extra-curricular activities regularly take place. Each house is responsible for organising a charity fund-raising event once a term. These are heavily attended and raise thousands of pounds for charity over the course of the year.
Year-round the girls are involved in charity work. In addition to raising funds for their chosen charities, they bring in food items for the Milton Keynes Food Bank. This is taken to the Bank on a weekly basis. All our Harvest Festival offerings are also given to this worthy cause.
