Twickenham Preparatory School is a leading and successful independent co-educational day school for children aged 4 to 13 situated in Hampton, South West London. The School was originally founded on Twickenham Green in 1969 by a small group of parents and moved to its new home in Hampton in 1992 to accommodate its growing numbers. The founding aim from its inception – to establish a school with high academic standards that was pastorally strong, caring and sensitive to the needs of the individual child – is still the heartbeat of the School 50 years on, and today, Twickenham Prep continues to achieve these aims and provides an exceptional all-round education to 285 pupils across Pre-Prep, Prep and boys in Years 7 & 8.
About the school
Twickenham Prep School has a wide catchment of children from adjacent areas. The School is two form entry with maximum class sizes of up to 20 children from Reception to Year 6, when girls leave after sitting 11+ exams and with boys sitting 13+ exams and remaining until Year 8. A testament to the success of the School is the record number of boys currently in Years 7 and 8. The School is committed to 13+ for boys and believes in the benefits that these years contribute in preparing the boys for the next stage of their education. Although non-selective at entry in Reception, Twickenham Prep ensures that each pupil reaches their full potential by focusing on the individual needs of each child as they progress through the School. Pupils’ progress is monitored, evaluated and developed, resulting in high standards of achievement across the curriculum. The destination schools for leavers are the leading independent day schools in the South West London area and on occasion boarding schools, with the School having a strong and consistent record of girls and boys gaining academic, sport, art, music and performing arts scholarships in recent years. Twickenham Prep School is a registered charity (No. 1067572) and a company limited by guarantee (No. 3475951). Overall management of the School is the responsibility of the Board of Governors with day-to-day running of the School delegated to the Head. The School has maintained a consistently strong financial performance in recent years. Further details are available via the Companies House website.
