International Admission

The first step in the admissions process is to register your daughter with us. 

Please email and we will send you our online registration form to complete.

Step 1

Complete a registration form for your daughter, you will be asked for a copy of her birth certificate, passport, and the latest copy of her school reports.  


Your daughter’s application will then be considered, and she may be invited for an online assessment.  For student’s who are looking to join Thornton for a short stay of one academic year or less, the assessment is not applicable.

Your daughter, along with parents, will then be invited for an online interview with our Headteacher.


If successful, your daughter will be offered a place.  If you choose to accept this offer, you will be required to complete a Parent Contract & Acceptance Form, Guardianship Form and will be required to pay an Admission Fee (£200) and Admission Deposit (£5,000) to secure her place.  

(Please note that your application will not be confirmed until you have nominated a guardian resident in the UK). 


Our Head teacher will send a welcome letter to you with all the details you will need for your daughter joining Thornton and for her first day.  

Please note, it is the family’s responsibility to acquire the relevant Visa’s to study in the UK.  For more information, please visit the UK Government website and The UK’s points-based immigration system: Application guidance
