Uniform

At Twickenham School we believe that dress and presentation help to create good personal standards among students. Parents / carers are requested to give their full support to the school in adhering to the range of clothing recommended.

It is especially important that uniform is correctly worn by students on the way to and from school. The school uniform is the corporate identity of the school that links students to Twickenham School and all that it stands for. Students who arrive at school incorrectly dressed may be sent home to rectify the matter.

Throughout the school day we expect to see that:

  • ties are done up to the collar and are of the appropriate length  
  • top buttons are fastened  
  • shirts are tucked into school trousers and skirts  
  • Make-up, this must be ‘subtle’ and unnoticeable 
  • the uniform code, including footwear, is correctly followed.

GCSE Results 2019

At Twickenham School we are celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results which show significant improvements across all subjects’. The number of students achieving a good pass in both English and Mathematics has increased from the previous year by 14% with students overall Attainment 8 improving by 5 points, significantly increasing on the 2018 results. Congratulations must go to Zoe Flashman who achieved 5 9s and 3 8s and Megan Hall who achieved 2 9s & 5 8s in all subjects including Maths and English. On average, Alfie Jones gained 3.5 grades and Sam Spiers 2.5 grades higher than expected in all subjects. Excellent results were obtained in English, Maths, Science, Geography, French, Dance, Drama & Music.   These excellent results reflect the hard work of students and the professional commitment of all of our teaching and support staff at Twickenham School. As a school, we have met and exceeded some challenging targets for this cohort of students, and I am very pleased that so many of our class of 2019 will now progress to further education with real confidence and a tremendous sense of achievement. We are delighted that our intake for Year 7 has increased by more than 50% and we hope that these students will be inspired to achieve their best by this excellent set of results.   I am sure that staff would want to thank our families too, as they have been so supportive yet again throughout the long examination season. The governors and I would like to send the warmest of congratulations to all our Year 11 students.   Assal Ruse

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.
