Thornton College is an all-girls Catholic school, founded by the Sisters of Jesus and Mary in 1917, which upholds Christian principles and values. We are an inclusive community and we welcome children of many different denominations and faiths as well as those of no faith. Today around 20% of our student population is Catholic.
We encourage our girls to recognise their unique gifts and abilities, to work towards their full development and to respect the faith and beliefs of others.
We endeavour to ensure that every voice is listened to, valued and accepted, so that we can work together to build our community. In this way, we enable our pupils to be mature, responsible and active members of our own school community and, later on, of the wider community, as they understand and practice the value of service to others.
