Ms Ruse joined Twickenham School from Waldegrave School in 2016. Since then the school has gone from strength to strength.

Examples of comments we have had from Ofsted inspections are:
Staff have established a warm, happy and nurturing learning environment in which all pupils can flourish.
'There is a harmonious atmosphere both inside, and out in the playground'
'Pupils and staff interact happily together in this pleasant learning environment'
'School leaders have invested heavily in commissioning a range of adults and external services, who can support pupils in their emotional and social development'
'Staff and pupils say that bullying is very rare and when it does happen, it is dealt with quickly and effectively by the school'
'Leaders are committed to enabling all pupils to become active and fulfilled citizens in modern Britain'
'Twickenham School has improved significantly over the last two years'
‘Strong leadership and clear procedures are making a noticeable difference to pupils’ outcomes’.
‘The support of governors, and their incisive questioning of leaders, ensures that improvements are effective’
'Pupils are highly respectful of their teachers and confident that they are supported well’
There are many more quotes I could share but rather than my telling you, take time to talk to our students about these changes and the impact it is having on their learning. One of the loveliest qualities about our students is how honest they are.
As important as Ofsted is, it is not the only reason why we improved our school. We continuously improve our school because we owe it to our students to offer them the best education and the best school experience that we can- a place where they can feel safe and also strive in every way.
