Ada Lovelace Church of England High School, one of four schools in the Twyford CE Academies Trust, is a new seven-form-entry secondary school for pupils aged 11-18 in Ealing, West London. As a new school within a highly aspirational and academically successful multi-academy Trust Ada Lovelace offers exciting development opportunities and good promotion prospects for talented and energetic teachers who support the ethos of our schools.

The Twyford Trust was established in October 2011 to enable an existing School, Twyford CE High School, to build on its successes and look outward to the large number of parents who were eager to become part of its community. The Twyford Trust aims to deliver outstanding education in a comprehensive school setting, and embraces the Twyford School motto ‘Life in all its fullness’, encouraging students to use their individual gifts wisely and well. Supported by the London Diocesan Board for Schools (LDBS), the Trust is the overarching organisation which provides support for all Trust schools – the Trust comprises four schools in the London Borough of Ealing.
The Trust has a highly evolved common curriculum which has had a powerful impact on the outstanding outcomes achieved in Maths across both William Perkin and Twyford. The new appointee will have the opportunity to work collaboratively to develop this further.
