We were delighted to officially open our new Boarding House, Orchard Close, at the start of this Summer term with a celebratory drinks party and tours of the house. At this event, attended by over 100 guests, Colin Howman Chairman of Governors, raised the Twyford flag to signal the beginning of a new boarding era. Boarding has been central to the life of Twyford for over 213 years (506,940 children’s heads on pillows!) and it was wonderful to hear the excited chatter amongst our weekly and flexi boarders absorbing their new surroundings as they unpacked and decorated their rooms. One Year 7 girl exclaimed “It’s like being in a hotel, will there be a chocolate on our pillows at bedtime!”.
Orchard Close sits adjacent to our current School premises within 2.36 acres of beautifully established grounds. The opening of this bespoke boarding house has realised our vision to deliver a ‘state of the art’ modern boarding facility, allowing us to extend our flexi-boarding opportunities to the many more children wishing to experience this at Twyford.
