The Twyford Trust
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.
Ealing Fields High School, Ealing
Ealing Fields High School was opened as a Free School in 2016, and became part of the Twyford CE Academies Trust on 1st September 2017. Ealing Fields has quickly assimilated the same systems and resources as the established Twyford Trust schools (William Perkin and Twyford CE High Schools, both of which are Ofsted ‘Outstanding’). Ealing Fields is also the smallest of the Trust schools, with only 120 in each year group and therefore has a very compact community identity. The school now has four year groups (7 - 10), totalling 485 students, and the staff community, though still small, is very positive and highly motivated. The school will move into its new building during 2019-20 but until then will remain situated in temporary accommodation in Wyke Gardens.
