Welcome …

Welcome to the Testwood School website. I am honoured and privileged to be the Headteacher of this ambitious 11-16 Secondary School which converted to Academy status in 2011.
Our aim is to prepare every student for their future lives while they are at Testwood by providing them with the best curriculum choices and the most supportive pastoral care. Having chosen Testwood for your child, it is our job to provide them with everything they need to thrive and succeed. In partnership with parents and carers, we will work with you to ensure a happy, challenging and rewarding experience within the College environment.
I hope you find this website useful and informative. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require further information.

Special Notice

When Testwood changed its status to become Testwood Sports College in 2004, the government initiative to allow schools to specialise enabled us to benefit from increased funding and apply for bids which enabled us to have the Astro turf pitch built. When the government ended specialist status funding, the title of the school remained because of our outstanding sporting facilities, provision and teaching expertise. Now we feel Testwood is far more than just being in a position to offer sporting excellence. As a good school we offer excellence across the curriculum. The public perception of the school is improving year on year but some people still believe that sport is the main ethos which is no longer the case. While sport continues to be strength, students thrive in all subjects they study. For this reason, the governors and I have decided to change the name from Testwood Sports College back to ‘Testwood School’ in 2017. I would like to reassure you all that everything about the school remains the same. There will be no changes to the school uniform except that for Year 7 in 2017, the school badge wording will change to Testwood School. From January 2017 onwards there will be a gradual transition away from the term TSC and we will keep you informed.


Great News! Ofsted say we are a ……….
