What the school says...

Delivering superb Primary education from the edge of the Bristol Downs in Redland, Torwood House School aims to provide its pupils with a happy, stimulating and caring environment. We recognise and uphold the widely accepted belief that the early years of a child's life are the most important of all. Our staff are committed to the belief that each and every one of our pupils has a right to both excellence of learning experiences and the highest quality of care. Our Nursery is attached and offers excellent daycare provision for babies and toddlers up to 5 years old. ...Read more

What the parents say...

We’ve been extremely satisfied with Torwood both the nursery and primary school. Small school and classes so all the children are known to all the teachers. Well behaved pupils are the result with a very high standard of education as well as ethics. The school/nursery is used to welcoming children from abroad, speaking different languages and they can integrate very quickly. There are lots of school activities including a cooking group, sports, drama, French, ICT, forest school.... The school is well located near the Downs. Our daughter is very happy here and I think the school has a lovely atmosphere to it. I would recommend it highly. After-school care is also excellent.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
