Glenthorne High School is a non-selective coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in the Sutton area of the London Borough of Sutton, England.[1]

The school was first established in 1933 on Glastonbury Road in Sutton. It moved to the Sutton Common Road site in 1958, and at this time was called Sutton Common County Secondary Girls' School. The school changed its name to Glenthorne in 1982, and in 1993 it became coeducational.[2] The school converted to academy status in July 2011, and was previously a foundation school administered by Sutton London Borough Council. The schools continues to coordinate with Sutton London Borough Council for admissions.
