Since 2020, Oliver Barrett BA previously deputy head academic at St George’s Juniors, Weybridge where he had been for 14 years. Prior experience includes Ashton House School in Isleworth where he started his teaching career as head of sport. A local himself, he was educated at nearby Hampton School before studying environmental studies (with QTS thrown in) at Roehampton. This is a hands-on head happy to throw himself into activities, and often seen donning outfits to mark an event or special day in school. ‘I don’t know when he stops to be honest,’ a parent told us. A keen triathlete and sportsman, he competes when time allows and is credited with upping the ante for sport at the school. ‘He’s blown in a breath of fresh air,’ another parent commented.

Special Education Needs

Twickenham Preparatory School caters for pupils with a specific learning difficulty within the average range of ability. As the School is academic and feeds many highly selective senior schools we do not take pupils with above average learning difficulties. Pupils are screened for literacy related problems from Year 2. Where a specific learning difficulty of a minor nature is identified the appropriate course of action is made in close consultation with parents.
