About Twyford

Headmaster’s Welcome

Twyford School is one of the oldest prep schools in the country. We are proud of our heritage and the beautiful history and architecture around the school. The worn stone steps in the corridor to Upper School are a wonderful reminder of the two hundred years of education provided at Twyford. We embrace Christian values and teach children from the earliest ages to be kind, considerate and respectful of others.

We are also proud of having some of the most up to date facilities and forward thinking approaches to education. Our innovative, progressive and ‘structured play’ curriculum aims to provide young, creative minds the opportunity to learn and to be stretched inside and outside the classroom. Classrooms are modern, bright and well-equipped with the latest technology. Our sports and outdoor facilities are simply outstanding.

We understand that children develop their mental and physical learning at different stages. This is at the heart of our teaching and proven academic success. We shape and nurture each individual learning journey so children never feel overwhelmed, but maintain their confidence and enthusiasm for creative learning throughout their time here.

We strive to find new ways to teach the curriculum and are not shy about reaching beyond it. By developing a child’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning and the world around them, we hope to inspire a self-belief that will serve them well in life.

At Twyford we pay attention to the detail of day-to-day life because it’s very often the little things we do that can make the biggest difference.

The boys, girls and staff are the heartbeat of the school – please come and see for yourself.
