Every day at Ealing Fields starts and ends with a period of silence which helps students cultivate a habit of reflectiveness.
The spiritual routines used in morning tutor times and assemblies are in common with Twyford and William Perkin and are designed to give every individual, irrespective of their own faith background or culture, space to centre themselves and therefore engage fully with the community life of the school.
The formal framework for this routine is drawn from the Christian tradition and this gives shape to the core values of the school.
The PSHE programme within the school is also values driven and encourages students to develop a strong sense of social responsibility inspired by the examples of inspiring stories of individuals from world history and current affairs. In the upper school the programme also supports students to reflect on the development of interpersonal and employability skills as well as providing careers guidance and IAG.
The pastoral programme also uses a framework of Bible stories which give students an understanding of the narratives which have informed British culture and RE/Ethics is a compulsory subject which is used to teach critical thinking & problem solving as part of the afternoon extension offer.
Our Café is open for breakfast, during break and lunch times and after school. It is an enjoyable, vibrant and colourful space with an outdoor area containing picnic benches and canopies.

The key to success at Ealing Fields is to be really organised and prepared. As well as their School Uniform and PE Kit (see Uniform), all students are required to have appropriate equipment for each lesson as this will support their readiness to learn.

Ealing Fields encourages the spirit of courageous endeavour which supports effective learning and strong habits of leadership in its learners. Students are encouraged not to be afraid to take calculated risks in their learning as the most profound progress often requires us to work outside our comfort zones.
At Ealing Fields, we aim to foster a culture where we will encourage our students to experiment and try - in the spirit of growth, and embrace failures as the preparation for future successes.
An essential element of this process is a commitment to feedback and self-evaluation for students, staff and the wider school community to embrace it as a powerful strategy for learning and improvement.
It is this confident approach to building students’ capacity to develop as learners which aligns most closely to the values of the Twyford Trust. In all Trust schools students are introduced to a balanced and aspirational set of disciplines referred to as the 10:10 ethic. You can read more about the 10:10 ethic in Ethos and Vision.
Using these approaches all students are encouraged to see themselves as having good gifts which they are to develop not simply for themselves but also for the benefit of others within the community.
Students are supported to be honestly self- evaluative – recognising their gifts but also being able to acknowledge weaknesses without negativity but with a commitment to self-improvement. Within this strong communal ethos, students become resilient to overcome difficulties and highly aspirational to meet personal goals.
We welcome applications from families who are keen to embrace this energetic culture of challenge and self-improvement – within a prestigious family of highly successful schools.
A formal system of positive conduct points is used to reward positive conduct and students are encouraged to take a pride in the cumulative points which are collected by each tutor group and house as well as each individual.
Negative conduct is picked up equally quickly and a same day detention system operates so that students immediately reflect on their mistake and are ready to move on from it.
Undoubtedly this makes Ealing Fields a strict school – but also one which cultivates self- discipline and mutual responsibility.
We believe that:
- Good behaviour is beneficial to the community as well as the individual
- Every opportunity must be given for negative conduct to be redeemed by positive conduct
- Only through consistent usage of the system by all stakeholders can the conduct of our students improve
Students will be recognised for classwork, homework, engagement and representing their house. These successes will be celebrated in assemblies, in the school newsletter and with the following termly net conduct point certificates:
Bronze – 25 points Silver – 50 points
Gold – 100 points Platinum – 200 points
The following sanctions will be enforced within the context of a lesson:
- Verbal warnings (no more than 1)
- Moved seating in classroom
- Sent to shadow timetable teacher / Head of Department removal from classroom
- Same‐day detention set for student
- Removed from lesson by duty teacher (automatic SLT detention & letter to parents)
