Welcome to the Testwood School website. I am honoured and privileged to be the Headteacher of this ambitious 11-16 Secondary School which converted to Academy status in 2011.

Our aim is to prepare every student for their future lives while they are at Testwood by providing them with the best curriculum choices and the most supportive pastoral care. Having chosen Testwood for your child, it is our job to provide them with everything they need to thrive and succeed. In partnership with parents and carers, we will work with you to ensure a happy, challenging and rewarding experience within the school environment.

I hope you find this website useful and informative. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require further information.

To all parents/carers,

Please be aware that Hampshire have the term dates showing as a return date of 4th September 2019 but as an Academy, we have the freedom to choose our own term dates.  It was decided that staff will return on 3rd and 4th September as Inset days with students returning on 5th September 2019.  This means that students will break-up on 17th July 2020 as opposed to 22nd July 2020 as we will have returned one day earlier in September 2019 and staff will have 20th and 21st July 2020 as disaggregated Inset days.

I hope this helps clarify the situation.

Kind regards,
Mrs Pitman.
