Our open mornings provide the perfect opportunity to tour the school*, meet members of our Senior Leadership Team, talk with our students, listen to presentations by Dr Shaw (Headteacher), about what makes a Thornton education so special, our Head Girl and Deputy Heard Girl, about their experiences of life at the school.

*Tours of the school are conducted by Thornton students, enabling visitors to hear at first hand how our girls feel about their school.

Thursday 16th November 2023

This event is a good opportunity for parents who are considering a Thornton education for their daughter to meet our Head Teacher, Dr Louise Shaw, who will welcome you to the school and give a brief introduction to the history and ethos of the school.

Meet The Head coffee mornings are generally a small, informal occasion allowing a more bespoke experience for families, with opportunities to ask questions and find out why a Thornton education is so special.

To register for the event please email Miss Alice Ho –

We look forward to welcoming you.
