Twyford sends children onto some of the top independent schools in the country. We are proud of the diversity and number of schools that our children regularly go to. We have an impressive record of getting children into their school of choice and a reputation for giving good advice on the most suitable schools for the nature of the child.
There is a wide choice of schools offering day or boarding, both full and flexi, single sex and co-ed within a 60 mile radius of Twyford. At our most recent biennial Senior Schools Fair, 20 schools attended all of whom we have strong relationships with. These include: Bedales, Bradfield, Bryanston, Canford, Downe House, Eton College, Godolphin, King Edward VI Southampton, Lord Wandsworth College, Marlborough, Portsmouth Grammar School, Radley College, St Edward’s Oxford, St Mary’s Calne, St Swithun’s, Sherborne Boys, Sherborne Girls, Wellington College, Winchester College, Wycombe Abbey.
Some children move on to local independent day schools at the end of Year 6 (11+) but the vast majority stay on to Year 8 (13+) enjoying the breadth and pace of the Twyford curriculum as well as the wonderful opportunities of being a senior in a Prep school.
Twyford prides itself on its experience in helping parents to choose the best senior school for their child. This begins in Year 4 with a ‘Future Schools’ talk given to all parents by the Headmaster, followed up with individual appointments. The Senior Schools Fair enables parents to meet many Registrars and Admissions teams from senior schools without having to travel miles! The children are thoroughly prepared for their senior school applications and are given lots of practice for the ISEB’s Common Pre-Tests, receiving guidance on best interview and exam techniques.
We are extremely proud of our academic record. Every year children win scholarships in a wide range of fields including academic, sports, music, art and drama. Please find below our most recent results.
