At Thornton College we have a range of accommodation for various age group years. For the majority boarding is upstairs in our Manor House in large bedrooms with stunning views, lots of space, high ceilings and natural light.
These boarding houses offer a range of different size bedrooms in our Manor House. All girls have access to wash basins in their bedrooms and also plenty of bathroom and shower facilities outside their bedrooms.
Our youngest girls will sleep in rooms of two – three in our homely Façade area where our staff are just across the corridor and can attend to any needs quickly. These rooms are warm and cosy and beautifully decorated.
Girls in Year 8 and 9 sleep in bedrooms of 6 – 8 children at the front of our Manor House. All the rooms have beautiful views, lots of windows and high ceilings.
Girls in Year 10 sleep on single beds in dual rooms with wash basins.
The New Wing is located above our Dining Room and offers single study bedrooms for students in Years 11 & 12. There are plenty of showers and a bathroom. In addition the girls have access to a small kitchen to make comforting hot drinks and snacks such as tea and toast!
The individual study rooms provide each girl with a cupboard, storage, bed, study desk and wash basin. All rooms have windows with views and lots of natural light. The girls just pop downstairs for breakfast and dinner and are centrally located in the school for all facilities.
This is a new development in September 2020. We have converted the Villa House into a Year 13 Boarding House. Our Year 13’s have their own bedrooms including beds, cupboards, study desks and they have a communal kitchen and washing machine. The Villa is set within our beautiful grounds and is a short walk across Fountain Lawn to school. A House mistress stays with our Year 13s and is there if needed. Essentially, our Year 13s learn how to be a bit more independent and live with others before they take their next steps into University Accommodation.
