Testwood School

Testwood School has proudly served the community of Totton and Calmore for nearly eighty years and is highly regarded by it. Consequently, there are very strong links between the community and the school; some of our students are the fourth generation of their family to be educated at Testwood. During this time the school has developed into a strong community of students and staff, where students can learn in a supportive and caring environment. Our school ethos is summed up as ‘Every Child, Every Step, Every Day’.

Testwood is a ‘Good’ school but we are not complacent about the challenges that we face in meeting the changing needs of the community we serve and ensuring that all of our students attain highly, are fully prepared to take ambitious steps into their futures, and make a positive contribution to their communities.

The school is located in the town of Totton, which is close to Southampton and on the edge of the New Forest National Park and has excellent transport links.
