An Outstanding School (Ofsted).....An Academy Trust.....A Teaching School

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Thornden School website.  I hope you will gain a flavour of the school and the success of its students.


We are an outstanding oversubscribed school with just over 1400 students in Chandlers Ford and are proud to welcome youngsters of all abilities and interests, helping them to move forward and achieve success.


We take pride in the high academic standards attained by our students, expecting young people to work hard and do their best in everything that they pursue.  Both examination results and the progress students make during their time at Thornden are consistently very high when compared to county and national standards.  As a school, however, our ethos extends to the wider enrichment opportunities that are on offer to young people, helping them to work together on effectively building the skills they need for their future through a range of activities during and beyond the school day.


It is my privilege to be the Headteacher of Thornden; it is a bright and inspiring place to learn with a well-qualified and committed teaching staff who help young people to enjoy, participate and achieve.

Headteacher's Welcome

Congratulations to all students receiving their 2019 examination results today, the results are excellent at an individual level and for the year group as a whole. We are delighted with outcomes which reflect hard work from students and their parents, working in partnership with teachers throughout five years at Thornden. I would particularly like to thank parents for their ongoing support and staff for their professionalism and hard work.

The demands of all exams continue to increase and students should be proud of their achievements and the time they have spent at Thornden. Hopefully results take students to appropriate courses which continue to create opportunity, develop potential and enable them to thrive as they move forward.


Enjoy the day and we hope to see students and parents at Certificate Evening in November.


If you have concerns or queries relating to specific examination results, Mr Hicks will be in school today and can be contacted by phone or email
