Director's Welcome


Welcome to the new Two Rivers Institute website.

Two Rivers Institute is the new name for Twynham Teaching School. Our drivers are quality, value and a research informed approach to professional practice in schools. Our mission is to facilitate and provide professional learning opportunities for colleagues in both the Twynham Learning family of schools as well as those in the wider educational community spanning Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Dorset and Hampshire.

When colleagues engage with Two Rivers Institute, our aim is to support them on their professional journey and provide a range of opportunities for professional growth and development from the early stages of their career through to becoming a senior leader as set out in the infographic below.
