Last year, due to hot weather many students requested to have the option of wearing shorts. We have therefore added a summer option of wearing tailored black shorts. These shorts must be purchased from either School Days in Whitton or Stevensons in Twickenham.

Students visit Downing Street

TWO Twickenham schoolboys visited Ten Downing Street as a thank you for helping to guide the Prime Minister’s private plane during a work experience placement at Heathrow airport. The Richmond and Twickenham times ran a story on Twickenham School students Sam Newbold and Jack Brown after they marshalled a Royal Airforce plane carrying Theresa May in December. The story was seen by an advisor to the PMs who contact the school to invite the pair on a tour of Number 10 in recognition of their efforts. Sam and Jack, both 14, said the highlight was getting the chance to sit around the cabinet of ce and sitting in the Prime Ministers chair. Jack, from Whitton, said: “You really had to make an effort to take it all in because you know you would not get the opportunity to do it again. “Sitting around the cabinet table was a real highlight because you could picture all those famous politicians who had sat there before. You got a real sense of history. “We say in the Prime Minsters chair which had been sat on by Winston Churchill. That gave me goose bumps, it was incredible. Sam, also from Whitton, said: “There is so much history in the rooms we visited and so many stories behind everything. “The person who showed us around new everything about the house and so was able to tell us what happened there. “It is strange to think that all of this came from us being on works experience at the airport and helping the Prime Minsters land her plane.

Brilliant Club Programme

TWICKENHAM MP Sir Vince Cable has backed our award-winning The Brilliant Club programme during a visit to the school. The Liberal Democrat leader chatted with Year 10 and 11 students who had taken part in The Scholars Programme, aimed at getting pupils into highly selective universities. Under the scheme, bright pupils took part in university style tutorials with PhD tutors before researching and writing their own university style assignments. Sir Vince said the programme was breaking down barriers by giving students the belief that they can go to highly selective universities. He said: “I was extremely impressed by the young people I met at Twickenham School today. They are very bright and had some great insights. “The biggest barrier for people in local state schools going to the top universities is belief. They have the talent and the intelligence and they are clearly well taught. “For some of them, like me, they will be the rst people in their family to go to university, and so programmes like this are fantastic at breaking down barriers.” Our headteacher Assal Ruse said: “The Brilliant Club has been wonderful at raising the expectations and aspirations of our pupils. “I work in a school with students with huge amounts of potential, students who have the ability to get into the top universities. “Our job is to harness that talent and give them the belief that they can achieve whatever they want, they have the ability to do that.” Dr Chris Wilson, CEO of The Brilliant Club, said: “In Britain today, there’s an entrenched link between a young person’s background and their chance of education success. “The Scholars Programme helps pupils develop the knowledge and skills necessary to ful l their academic potential and secure places at highly- selective universities.
