About Ada Lovelace Church of England High School
Ada Lovelace Church of England High School opened in September 2018 and has a smaller intake (125 students per year) for two years while co-located at William Perkin Church of England High School - an Ofsted Outstanding school - in Greenford. It now has two Year Groups with a total of 257 students. The school moves to its brand new permanent site in north Ealing in September 2020, at which time student numbers increase to 196 per year group. The school will have 1,330 students when full. Ada Lovelace is named after the Victorian pioneer of computing – it has a specialism in digital technologies and will provide different routes from Year 7 in ICT and Computer Science as well as applications of Creative Media. Ada Lovelace also benefits from specialist provisions and support from within the family of Trust schools. This includes a common curriculum, which has been devised by staff within the 4 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 Twyford 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 comprises four schools in the London Borough of Ealing. The Trust prides itself in a common pastoral programme which is firmly rooted in the core Christian values of its foundation and allows pastoral post-holders to play a key role in the support of all aspects of CIAG and SMSC. The programme is used across all 4 of the trust schools.
