I am delighted to be the school’s Interim Head until the arrival of our new Headteacher in April 2023.

I joined Thorpe in 2008 as a PE Teacher before becoming Head of Sport, Pastoral Head of Middle School and latterly Deputy Head in April 2021. Thorpe is a remarkable school which puts the pupils at the heart of its decision-making. The staff take time to get to know and support your son so he can indulge his academic curiosity and embrace the full range of opportunities available to him.

Do please look at our website and visit the school. Our next Open Day is on 15th March 2023, but it is possible to arrange an individual visit via our Registrar, Mrs Tyler, at office@thorpehouse.co.uk. We look forward to meeting you and your son in the near future.

Mr Sean Day

Interim Head

After looking around the various schools in the area, Thorpe stood out for its friendliness, its ability to put you at ease, and by how 'normal' the other parents are. We could see how our boys would settle into the nurturing family environment that promotes individuality, but encourages them to be...

Thorpe House Parent

The Senior Department allows boys to mature and flourish in their individual skills and subjects by having small class numbers and the nurturing of some of the teachers has been paramount in building our son's confidence. Both of my boys have Dyspraxia and my eldest also has Dyslexia but the...
