The Trustees and Governors have approved the move to open a Sixth Form at Thornton College next September 2016.
The announcement follows a rigorous feasibility study which included an extensive research study among current and prospective parents. It also included the development of an exciting new programme incorporating ‘A’ levels and vocational qualifications, in addition to detailed financial planning. It is clear from the overwhelming support from current and prospective parents that this new development will have the support it needs to be a great success.
We have worked relentlessly to ensure this will provide the very best educational experience for all and a first class preparation for university and life beyond. We will be recruiting appropriate staff for specific subjects and a Director of Sixth Form.
In the first year the Sixth Form will be housed within the existing school building but within its own redesigned area. This area will include a common room, additional classrooms and meeting / interview rooms together with office space for staff. A diverse range of subjects will be on offer in line with other independent schools. The curriculum will be complemented by an enriched co-curriculum. Details of these will follow shortly in separate announcements and documentation.
There is an information evening on Thursday 3rd December at 7.00pm. You are warmly invited to attend.
