" The level of remote learning that has provided has been unbelievable. The staff have gone above and beyond all expectations. I've just been so impressed with how smoothly everything has gone and how hard everyone has worked to keep some sort of normal for the children. "

Reception and Year 2 Parent

" Superb school. Pushes your child to be the best they can be whilst never forgetting respect and kindness to others. Excellent nurturing environment, children genuinely value their friendships and support each other. Teachers have a great relationship with the children. If our child could stay there until he is 18, we would sign up now. Thank you TPS. "

Year 7 Parent

" TPS has been the absolutely perfect school for our son. It is kind, caring and inclusive. Our 9 years there have been wonderful, and as he’s grown, we’ve seen a remarkable transformation, from a shy 4 year old, to a confident, drama-loving 13 year old. The Headmaster, teachers, all the staff, are so friendly, passionate and helpful, and really want the very best for each child. TPS works hard with the children to help them all reach their full potential. The 9 years have been an incredible journey, for our son and us as a family - he has achieved so much - more than we thought possible. TPS is an amazing school, with caring, dedicated and inspiring teachers. It is a place of warmth and love where the children want to do well, and are proud of each others achievements. We’ve all made some fantastic friends. "

Parent of Year 8 Pupil

" The opportunities offered at TPS are so diverse: through the school my eldest daughter has unearthed a passion for triathlons, my son is an enthusiastic member of the chess team and my youngest is able to identify a whole range of edible herbs through her nature trail lessons. "

Current Parent

" Please pass on our thanks to all the staff as they continue so brilliantly to support the TPS children. Considering how little time you as a school had to prepare for this, I am so impressed that you are continuing to support the children emotionally, spiritually and in their general well-being through PSHE and PE classes in addition to all the traditional subjects. TPS has managed to keep that real sense of community which the children thrive in. So a huge thanks again to all the staff, both teaching and non-teaching who are keeping everything else going on behind the scenes. "

Year 6 Parent

" TPS seems to be blessed with an ambience second to none. "


" In our experience, TPS genuinely succeeds in meeting its aim of combining excellent academic provision with a happy, caring and supportive learning environment, no mean feat in a world dominated by league tables. Our two children (Year 6 and Year 4) love their school and have both thrived since joining TPS three years ago from another school. We would not hesitate to recommend the school to other parents. "

Current Parent

" Pushes peoples boundaries without making you feel uncomfortable "

A year 8 pupil

" A school to have an enriching education and be truly relaxed and happy! I would recommend Twickenham Preparatory School. "

A pupils Grandma

" A prep school that definitely lives up to its name. We watched our daughter begin her journey in reception and blossom into a happy, well rounded, confident girl full of interests and enthusiasm. Having just left the school at the end of Year 6 with offers to all the senior schools she sat for, including two academic scholarships; we couldn't have asked for a better start. Our thanks to this amazing school and its dedicated and caring staff. "

Current Parent

" TPS has provided the perfect platform for our two sons’ with its hands on approach focusing on the academic fundamentals and core development skills so crucial for transition to senior school "

Current Parent

" Our two boys have thrived at Twickenham Prep. Both needed to realise their potential and the hardworking and inspiring staff at TPS have helped them blossom and achieve their goals. The support and encouragement given to both children and parents during exam preparation is excellent, and the range of co-curricular activities complements their learning massively. "

Current Parent

" My Grandson, who is a pupil at Twickenham Preparatory School, is coming by leaps and bounds and would like to give a special "Thank You!" to each and all. A teaching that is so unique and an environment that truly respects the individuality of all pupils. "

A pupil's Grandma

" My son loves going to school every day. TPS is a happy and caring environment where the staff really know every child. Each pupil is encouraged and there are many ways to celebrate their talents and skills, creating a wonderful all-rounder of a prep school. "

Current Parent

" Twickenham Prep offers everything a parent could wish for in a school. Every day we listen with delight as our son brims over with his latest news, from rugby, football, cricket, chess, science competitions and amazing drama productions; the list really is endless! TPS packs it in and wraps it up in a blanket of care and support. A busy and successful school that truly gets the balance right. "

Current Parent

" As a family with three very different children we have been delighted to find a school where each child can thrive and find their own strengths and talents. It is not a “one size fits all” institution. The individual is nurtured and supported to develop their interests and reach their best potential. My son went from being an extremely shy child at nursery to winning the public speaking cup at the end of year 2! "
