  • Ski Trip

    The ski trip is a highly anticipated annual residential for Years 8 - 11, and this February half term's second venture to Madonna de Campiglio in the Dolomites was another roaring success! A trip designed to accommodate skiers of all abilities, from the newbie who has never even seen snow, to the seasoned off-piste professional – all abilities are welcome! The ski trip 2020 saw a cohort of a complete range of abilities (including amongst the staff!). Having left Thornden on Friday before the end of the school day, staff and students traversed a number of countries over the course of the 24hour coach journey, eventually arriving at what was, effectively, the ski trip's own private hotel.

    On Monday 2nd March the U13 girls football team played Kings in the Hampshire Cup Semi final. To say it was a tense game would be an understatement! The team went 1-0 down fairly early on after the ball took a nasty bobble on the pitch and headed goal bound. Thornden managed to pull it back just before half time via a goal from Kezia.

  • Regional Badminton Success

    Thornden's U14 girls and U16 boys went to Guildford on Thursday last week as county champions to represent Hampshire schools in the South East Regional Tournament. The standard of badminton on display in both competitions was phenomenal. The U16 boys played really well but just lost each of their 3 group matches by 3 games to 2 in what was the stronger group on the day. The highlight was Sam beating the England No. 3 in his opening singles match.

  • Published Results for 2019

    On Thursday 6th February we received our validated results for the 2019 series of GCSE exams. We are delighted with the outcomes for both attainment and progress, which put Thornden as the highest performing school in Hampshire. What is particularly pleasing is that this success covers students across all ability ranges and this makes us extremely proud. Our Attainment 8 score of 61 means that our students achieve, on average, a grade 6 in all their GCSEs. The Progress 8 score of +0.65 means that on average our students achieve almost 2/3 of a grade higher than the national average, for every subject.
