Thorngrove School

This is a school that seems to grow and flourish alongside your child. It has a cosy, unassuming, nurturing feel and, with nothing obviously fancy or shiny on show, gets down to its core business calmly, without fuss or distraction. Remaining a small prep school with no boarding adds to its unique personality and is all the more remarkable for being only an hour and 20 minutes’ drive from London (or 45 minutes by train from Paddington).
