We are thrilled to be launching a co-ed Sixth Form in September 2024 in the heart of Gerrards Cross. We pride ourselves in becoming finalists in the ‘Independent Schools of the year’ award in 2021..

Thorpe House is based in the beautiful town of Gerrards Cross in Buckinghamshire. At Thorpe House our aspirations push us to achieve higher. There is no such thing as failure, only a desire to learn and become the best version of ourselves.

As soon as they start in Reception we look to prepare our boys for the world to which we believe we should all aspire, one in which there is an emphasis on encouragement and recognition of our diversity and where we want the boys to consider not what they can do for themselves but what they can do for others. Through an enrichment programme that runs throughout our three year GCSE course, we build on the confidence that has already been nurtured in the earlier years to develop skills and empathy that will make them the leaders that we want and need to direct the course of our society in the future.

Other features

All-through school (for example 3-18 years). - An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.

Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.
