Due to its rural location, it has a wide catchment area, with significant numbers of students travelling from Andover and other places like Salisbury.
Its school emblem is the Test Valley Trout and this is seen on the uniform.
Despite claims of the Test Valley sports teams being called either "The Trouts" or "The Tigers" they do not have a specific name, because It is a British school. Not an American High School in a dodgy Disney musical.
As a specialist school in maths, the students take parts in various 'challenges' in the mathematical world.the main challenge test valley undertakes is the UKMT or the UK math challenge taken once every year by the top maths sets from each year. Also a few yers a go some year 9's did the 'Peachy Fruitcakes', who managed to come joint first in the National Cipher Challenge.
The uniform colours are bottle green for Years 7-9, grey for Years 10-11 and Year 11 Prefects have their own black uniform.
The school has six houses named after local people who did notable things throughout history, all with their own house colour; Austen (Yellow), Dickens (Orange), Gaunt (Red), Nightingale (Green), Sopwith (White) and Wickam (Blue).
