Welcome from the Head

Thorngrove is a family-orientated school that has been described to me as 'the best kept secret in Hampshire'. We offer children a safe and supportive environment in which they are able to discover their passions and grow as individuals. Our small class sizes means each child is individually supported and they are encouraged to develop life skills that will help them thrive in later life.

Children only get one childhood and we firmly believe it is our job to make it an experience they will cherish and reflect on positively. All children are unique, with gifts and talents that will enrich their lives and others around them. Our focus at Thorngrove is to allow the children to develop and celebrate their individuality. We aim to give each child a breadth of experience throughout their Prep School education and the opportunity to stretch themselves in all areas of school life.

We foster a love of learning, and a can-do attitude underpinned by curiosity, resilience and an awareness of the world around them. The children at Thorngrove are inherently kind and grounded in their approach to life, which makes them well-loved by their senior school destinations.

Thorngrove is characterised by a warm, friendly and happy family atmosphere where children mix across year groups and build lifelong friendships.

We look forward to welcoming you into our school community.
