What the school says...
We are a truly unique independent day school; small enough to value and know each individual and large enough to provide him with a rich and varied range of learning opportunities, inside and outside of the curriculum.
We are the only all-through boys’ school in Buckinghamshire taking boys from Nursery at age three through to their GCSE’s at age 16. As a successful, approachable independent school specialising in boys’ education, we understand the ways in which boys learn and we genuinely treat each boy as an individual.
We understand that boys will be boys and are often lively, opinionated, physical and competitive; we harness these qualities and produce well-educated, well-mannered and well-rounded, young men.
Every boy at Thorpe House is unique, some are academics, some excel in sport and others in the performing arts; each boy is different and it is that difference that we nurture and value ...Read more

Special Education Needs
Our small learning support department has the resources and expertise to offer help to boys with specific learning difficulties, particularly dyslexia, dyspraxia and dyscalculia. This is in the form of 1:1 tuition on a private basis, although some in-class support is also offered. We routinely screen all new pupils into years 3 and 4 for signs of difficulty with literacy and numeracy. We arrange annual voluntary vision screening by a visiting behavioural optometrist and have links with various other professionals such as speech and language therapists and educational psychologists. We have some experience of pupils with ADHD and mild Asperger’s syndrome. We pride ourselves on being a small, caring and inclusive community of staff and boys, and work hard to ensure everyone fits in, and is able to reach their potential.
