Curriculum

staff have developed a curriculum that provides pupils with a broad range of experiences. It has also helped to define the knowledge and skills that pupils need to tackle examination courses successfully."

Ofsted

When your child arrives at Twickenham School, we use information from their primary school plus diagnostic testing and teacher assessment to determine the support and challenge that they need. This guides setting in English, Maths and Science. However students are assessed regularly and there are chances to move sets after each monitoring point. During Key Stage 3 we also focus on developing the skills and habits that students need for success at Key Stage 4.

In Year 10 students begin GCSE and vocational courses. We use our 11-16 status as an opportunity to boost students’ aspirations so that their eyes are opened to the opportunities that lie ahead for them. For example, we have taken students to visit Oxford University (among others), sixth form colleges and school sixth forms, apprenticeship providers and employers. We also offer high quality careers advice, including mock interviews and help with applications. This means that our students have high rates of entry into education or training when they leave us and are prepared and confident in taking their next step.

Twickenham School supports gifted and talented students by our unique assessment approach, which models the GCSE expectations from entry and enables clear identification of those students who are able to be stretched and challenged. Targets are used to motivate students with regular reviews.

For more information about the curriculum, contact the school.
