William Perkin CE High School
William Perkin Church of England High School opened as a Free School in September 2013 with its first intake of Year 7 students, and now has seven year groups (7 - 13) totalling almost 1,400 students. The school is founded on the successful systems and approaches of Twyford CE High School, with the principle difference that it is a distinctively Christian school with open admission criteria. The school is rated ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted (June 2015) and SIAMS (October 2016) and is oversubscribed on first choice applicants. The Twyford Trust’s fourth school – Ada Lovelace CE High School – opened in September 2018 and is temporarily based in additional accommodation at the William Perkin site until its own new building opens in September 2020. Ada Lovelace currently has 2 years groups with a total of 257 students.
