Open Morning at Torwood House School, Redland

We pride ourselves here at Torwood House School in knowing every child personally therefore no child is ever unnoticed or invisible.  Every child’s aspirations are whole-heartedly supported, whatever direction they wish to take.

Our Independent School’s Association (ISA) Junior and Prep School Award for Excellence and Innovation clearly demonstrates our passion for our children’s learning and our commitment to providing a cutting edge curriculum.

Our award winning education coupled with a nurturing environment means each child receives a tailored teaching style to suit them, allowing them to truly flourish.  Our pupils learn a modern foreign language, which gives pupils a wider world view and an appreciation of cultures other than English at an earlier age than many. Other provision includes, unlike many other schools, weekly swimming lessons and Forest School for Reception children, which sees them exploring the natural world in nearby woodland.  Clearly, our children are at the heart of everything we do!

Why not come and meet our children, our greatest ambassadors!  Our Open Morning Event is being held on Friday 6th October from 9.30 am until 12.00 noon.  We offer primary education for boys and girls between the ages of 4 -11 years and are based in Redland.
