The Twyford Trust
The Twyford Trust comprises four schools in the London Borough of Ealing. The Trust was established in October 2011 to enable an existing School, Twyford CE High School, to build on its successes and look outward to the large number of parents who were eager to become part of its community. The Twyford Trust aims to deliver outstanding education in a comprehensive school setting, and embraces the Twyford School motto ‘Life in all its fullness’, encouraging students to use their individual gifts wisely and well. Supported by the London Diocesan Board for Schools (LDBS), the Trust is the overarching organisation which provides support for all Trust schools. The Trust has a highly evolved common curriculum which has been devised by staff within the four schools. The Trust is also the hub of a Teaching School Alliance and prides itself on the standards of peer-led CPD within a dynamic culture of self-improvement.
The Music College
Over 350 students receive instrumental tuition through the Music College (based at Twyford School), which comprises four full-time teachers of music, an administration team, musician-in-residence posts and sixteen instrumental tutors. Tuition is offered on voice, strings, woodwind, brass, guitar, drums, piano, keyboard and theory and instrumental tutors are a significant and valued part of the music college team. All are expected to contribute to the musical development of students through preparing them for entry to practical examinations through the ABRSM, Trinity and Rockschool boards as well as GCSE and A Level performance examinations. Tutors also contribute significantly to a wide programme of extra-curricular activities.
