Testwood School 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 was delayed opening due to World War II. The school takes pupils between 11 and 16, but holds adult skills classes as well after school hours. Testwood bases its organisation on tutor groups. Each has its own tutor and is part of a house system. The houses are Bedivere, Lancelot, Galahad and Excalibur.HistoryTestwood SchoolTestwood School originally opened in 1946 as a secondary school, and became a comprehensive school in 1969. The school is formed of the original building alongside other extensions added throughout the years. Major extensions were added in recent years including the Sports Hall, and an extension to the science block and library in 1997. A further extension containing more science laboratories and ICT rooms opened in 2001.Sports college statusIn 2004, the school was given the special status of sports college. With this new status, the astroturf was built, and a whole change of school image took place. The logo was changed, as was the uniform. With the specialist status, many in the local community use the school's facilities, and the school has become well known in the community. Since the status was granted, improvements have been made to the sports facilities including refurbishment of the changing facilities, and an extension to the sports hall.Since becoming a sports college, the school has been the hub of the New Forest School Sports Partnership, which encourages and supports sports in the local community through the feeder schools, and through the Dreams and Teams 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.
