We are very proud of our facilities, and through our regular hirers, we can see the important role our school plays in the life of the local community.

Our facilities include an Astro Turf Pitch, Sports Hall, Gym and Dance Studio, as well as a Conference Room and various Classrooms. 

Thornden Tennis Club and Community Badminton Club meet here regularly, along with many local sports groups.

All our facilities are available for hire in the evenings and at the weekends throughout most of the year.

The convenient location of the school, adjacent to junction 12 of the M3, plus the availability of onsite parking make our facilities an attractive option for local teams, groups and businesses.
