Year 7 MFL Spelling Bee Competition

Throughout Year 7, every spelling test in French, German and Spanish counts towards prizes and certificates.


At the end of the academic year, the pupils with the highest overall scores are selected to attend a pizza party in the Conference Room, an event which is regularly supported and partially funded by the FoTS committee. This year, nearly 60 pupils attended the celebratory pizza lunch, where a great time was had by all! Many congratulations to all pupils involved, and good luck to the new Year 7 in their quest for pizza!

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.
