What the school says...

TWBS has a great reputation for both the creative arts and sport, especially rowing. It provides a very broad curriculum for all from Year 9 up to the Sixth Form, and believes in using a traditionally supportive ethos to prepare boys for the future.

This is not currently a GSG-reviewed school.

International Baccalaureate: diploma - the diploma is the familiar A-level equivalent.



Please note: Independent schools frequently offer IGCSEs or other qualifications alongside or as an alternative to GCSE. The DfE does not record performance data for these exams so independent school GCSE data is frequently misleading; parents should check the results with the schools.

Special Education Needs

It is the aim of the school to enable pupils to achieve the highest standards possible. This will be achieved within the context of a broad and balanced curriculum that embraces the National Curriculum. In the case of pupils having a learning or behavioural difficulty which is significantly greater than the majority of pupils his age, or having a disability which either prevents or hinders him from making use of the educational facility, the school's intention is to make specific provision for that pupil. The support and involvement of parents is integral to the education of all pupils, particularly those with special needs. In the case of more able pupils the school's intention is to provide extension and enrichment to the curriculum so that they can reach their full potential.

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
