One of the key aims of Isleworth & Syon is to be a “modern” and “innovative” school, giving students the best platform to learn, achieve and succeed during their years at the school. One way that we do this is by offering our boys top-class facilities in which to get the best education that they can.

The school has resided on Ridgeway Road since 1939. It consists of the main building and various later additions, such as the art and design & technology areas and Sports Hall. Browse the tabs for more information on what the school has to offer.

As a specialist Sports College, the sports provision is very important at Isleworth & Syon. The school has its own playing fields, as well as the exclusive use of recreational facilities at Busch Corner. The field has a new third-generation astro-pitch as well as a grassed area. These allow for a variety of sports to be played during P.E. lessons and at break-time and lunch-time.

As well as these, the school has extensive playground areas, with basketball hoops and cricket nets. There are two caged hard-court areas for basketball and five-a-side football, as well as five table-tennis tables designated to each year group. The school’s gymnasium is equipped with various gymnastic apparatus, while the sports hall has basketball hoops, football goals and badminton nets. Inside the Sports Hall is a gym for more senior students which includes weightlifting facilities and rowing machines.

Each of the general purpose classrooms is equipped with projector technology and a smartboard, giving the teachers the opportunity to craft more engaging and interactive lessons. These classrooms are grouped by subject area generally, and take up two floors. There are also:

  • seven science laboratories;
  • three art rooms with pottery and darkroom facilities;
  • six design & technology workshops, containing computerised lathe facilities and a brand-new food technology classroom;
  • two computer-equipped business studies rooms;
  • three extensively-equipped computer rooms with multi-media machines running Windows 8.1, and high-speed internet internet access;
  • a music suite, containing music technology facilities and three music practise rooms;
  • a drama room with lighting board;
  • a sixth form study room;
  • a large assembly hall used for school and community productions.

In Summer 2012, an extended library was completed, offering better computer access and improved seating arrangements.

During 2013-14, the school completed a renovation of the Humanities block and the ICT suites, which were opened for students to use in September 2014. These rooms offer a completely new design aesthetic in line with the school’s new branding. The classrooms now have a swathe of natural light from larger windows which creates a more open feel for teaching and learning.

In September 2014, the welcome corridor (where the school hall is situated) was completely redesigned. A new digital signage system has been installed, with multiple 46” LCD screens displaying information, notices and achievements.

The corridor is split into two sections – History/Commemoration and Future/Celebration – which honours the school’s rich and textured history as well as the continued success of current Isleworth & Syon students. This work – the result of almost a year’s planning and organisation – continues the school’s desire to be an outstanding, modern school that demonstrates innovation and excellence.
