Torwood House Independent School

Torwood House School is not just a happy, safe and supportive community; it is a living organism that is a hive of activity and sings in satisfaction. It is a place where children are encouraged to embrace new situations with confidence and flexibility to become independent, free thinkers; individuals who make a difference.

Follow us _on TwitterWe are delighted to be an award winning independent school in Bristol recognised by the ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate) as providing exceptional pastoral care resulting in the excellent personal development of our pupils.

Our staff team continually strives to improve the quality of education provision in all that we do. Torwood House School is recognised as having the balance required to deliver the right learning in individual, group and class settings; whilst appropriately modifying lessons to ensure consolidated learning by all children. This, in harmony with quality teaching, is how you can be sure that children are able to make the progress they need. There is special emphasis on speaking and listening skills — a secure grounding for the key English skills. Torwood pupils learn French and Spanish in turn contributing to a wider world view, and appreciation of cultures other than English.

Our staff have excellent relationships with pupils and this is seen to encourage development in independence, thinking skills, and individual children’s interaction with the world around them.

There has been, and continues to be excellent work to improve pupils’ learning with useful strategies introduced in lessons that help identify and address any gaps in pupils skills particularly in writing.

We regularly upgrade our specialist areas for Art and Design, Food Technology, and Computing; and have enriched both our outdoor activity surfaces and covered areas.

Our parent testimonials from in and around Bristol are unanimous in their praise of the Torwood Independent Preparatory School, commenting on how well they are involved in their children’s education.

Torwood Lodge Independent Nursery

Torwood Lodge Nursery is a privately run nursery pleasantly located in Durdham Park, Redland, based on the edge of the Downs and ten minutes from the city centre. We provide a warm and friendly environment for children aged from six weeks to five years and are open from Monday to Friday between 8.00am and 5.50pm excluding public holidays (a 7.30am start is on offer for an extra payment).

Torwood Lodge Nursery is located near Torwood House School, which was established in 1915 and was at that time in Howard Road, Redland. It was originally run by two ladies as a ‘Dame School’.

Since September 1996 the School and Nursery have been under the ownership of Mrs Samantha Packer who is committed to ensuring that standards continue to improve and that Torwood House School and Nursery goes from strength to strength.

From the 1996 Caroline Louden has brought a child-centred focus and superb level of professional qualification to Torwood Nursery. As a Registered General Nurse, qualified midwife and health visitor, Caroline has continued to develop her professional standing to support the ongoing development of Torwood — recently awarded the Early Years Professional Status. From a high level of professional knowledge and experience she manages the largest of our nurseries — with a reputation that is unsurpassed in the area. Our families come back to us, and recommend us so the Nursery remains immensely popular — Caroline herself had two children at the Nursery.

Our ongoing and enviable reputation invigorates staff so the atmosphere throughout Torwood Nursery is energetic and happy.

’I echo Samantha Packer’s pride, we really do have an environment where all children and staff are supported to be their very best and I am delighted to be a part of both the history and the future of Torwood Nursery.’
