Testwood School (formerly Testwood Sports College) is a secondary school with academy status located in the town of Totton and Eling, England. The school was built in the late 1930s but its opening was delayed by World War II. The school takes pupils between 11 and 16,Cite error: A <ref> tag is missing the closing </ref> (see the help page).

Since becoming a sports college, the school has been the hub of the New Forest School Sports Partnership,[2] which encourages and supports sports in the local community through the feeder schools, and through the Dreams and Teams[3] project working with Serokolo High School. The NFSSP has its main base at Testwood, and another base at the other local sports college, Noadswood School.

Academy status

In late 2011, the school applied for academy status, which was granted in the autumn of 2011.[4]

Name change

It was announced that Testwood Sports College was reverting to its previous and original name, Testwood School. This was because when the school obtained sports college status, it was to receive government funding, but the government had ended the programme a few years previously. The school decided to keep the name Testwood Sports College, as it is known for its sporting facilities. It was agreed that Testwood wasn't only good for sporting, but its overall curriculum, and it was decided to revert the name.


In February 2014 Testwood received a judgement of "Inadequate" from Ofsted and was placed in special measures.[5] In June 2014 the Governing Body of the school was sent a pre-warning letter by Lord Nash of the Department of Education advising that standards erre seen as "unacceptably low" by the Secretary of State.[6] Since the Ofsted report, I Appleton was replaced in May 2014 by J.A. Pitman. Since she has arrived there have been changes to the uniform, back to what it used to be. More positive changes have been made around the school. In July 2015, Testwood School received a good rating from Ofsted,[7] and the school is no longer in special measures.


The school has a synthetic turf pitch, a recently refurbished sports hall, an 18-acre (73,000 m2) field including two adult and two junior football pitches and a rugby pitch; tennis courts, outdoor basketball hoops, a gymnasium, fitness studio and two drama/dance studios. The school also has 35 general purpose teaching rooms, nine science laboratories, a music suite, six purpose built technology rooms, three art rooms, six ICT suites and a Learning Resource Centre. The LRC spans 450 square meters and was one of the best school libraries in the country when opened. It contains 60 computers alongside the collection of books.[8][9][10]


Pupils usually come to Testwood from the three main feeder schools: Abbotswood Junior School, Calmore Junior School and Oakfield Primary School.

Applications for School Prefect occur during Year 10, and duties continue until the final exams in Year 11. Six students per year group serve on the school council along with the Head Boy and Girl and Deputy Head Boy and Girl.[11]

Testwood bases its organisation on tutor groups. Each has its own tutor and is part of a house system. The houses are named Bedivere, Lancelot, Galahad and Excalibur.
