Twyford CofE High School
Twyford Church of England High School was set up by the London Diocesan Board for schools in 1981 and is one of a family of 13 LDBS secondary schools within the city. The school opened as the result of a concerted campaign by local parents and has grown stronger and stronger over its 30 year life.
It was rated by OFSTED in its most recent inspection as ‘Outstanding’ overall and has a considerable reputation within the Diocese and the local area. The school has also grown in size during this time with a particular increase at Post-16. There are now 944 students in yrs. 7 -11 and 511 in the 6th Form.
The admission criteria for the school favour students from practising Christian or other World Faith backgrounds and the strong Christian ethos of the school is one of its defining features. Culturally the school is very mixed and represents the wider urban area in which the school is situated.
Twyford is currently heavily oversubscribed and students starting in year 7 come from 71 different primary schools and 7 London Boroughs.
The school’s motto is ‘I have come that you should have life, and have it to the full’ (John 10 10) and the atmosphere at the school reflects this. It is upbeat, positive and energetic with an emphasis on high engagement.
