Twyford School can lay claim to being
the oldest Prep School in the country.
There has been a school for boys in Twyford since the middle
of the seventeenth century and it moved to the present site
in 1809, based in the elegant Queen Anne house that we see
Throughout the nineteenth century, buildings appropriate for
small boarding schools of the time were added. These included
a large schoolroom built in the 1820s - still in use, as a
theatre, today - and a charming mid-Victorian chapel.
During the last two decades of the twentieth century, a major
programme of building and sports' field development was undertaken
and the School was expanded to provide a first class, well
balanced education for boys and girls aged from three to thirteen
years - with opportunities for both boys and girls to board
from the age of eight.
Famous Old Pupils include Alexander Pope, Hubert Parry and Douglas Hurd.
