Twickenham Preparatory School
Twickenham Preparatory School is an Independent Day School for boys aged 4 to 13 and girls aged 4 to 11 located in Hampton, Middlesex. The school was founded in 1969 and is a registered charity. Pupils are prepared for entrance and scholarship exams into local independent secondary schools, the boys for the 13+ Common Entrance and girls for the 11+ .
At TPS we aim to give each pupil the opportunity to develop his or her talents in a wholly supportive environment. We really do have an inclusive approach to work and play. We have a broad curriculum, small class sizes, good facilities and excellent academic results. There are many activities to choose from outside the classroom and everyone has the chance to perform in music or drama or play for one of the school teams.
There is a positive Christian ethos, reinforced by a strong pastoral care system where pupils are encouraged to play their part in looking after the needs of others in the school community. Our school believes in praise and the celebration of success.
"Not pressured or pushy, rather kind, inspiring and creative." The Good Schools Guide 2013.

The children enjoy a full range of sporting activities, including football, rugby and cricket for the boys, netball and rounders for the girls. A new purpose built art and music block has really enhanced these subjects. Extra curricular activities include drama. music, ICT, table tennis, Scripture Union, choir and fencing.
