The Russell Education Trust and the Turing House School Governing Body are pleased to introduce the school’s new Headteacher.
Martin is an experienced senior leader and a trained Ofsted inspector who has been the Deputy Headteacher at Turing House since the school opened. He is also currently the RET lead for Religion & Philosophy and Post 16 Education. Before moving to Turing House School, Martin was the Deputy Headteacher at Cheam High School in Sutton.
Martin grew up locally and attended The Rosary School in Heston and then Gunnersbury Catholic School for Boys in Brentford. He has taught a range of secondary subjects including History and Law. He also launched the AS Politics course at Turing House.
At Cheam High School, Martin line-managed several departments. His main role was in leading whole school Key Stage 5 (6th form) education. During this time Cheam High School gained three outstanding Ofsted inspections and the Sixth Form curriculum grew significantly. Numbers rose, eventually reaching over 600 students. Large numbers took up places at University including Oxford and Cambridge.

Martin has already led by example at THS, teaching all of the founding students GCSE Religious Studies, entering the entire cohort a year early! 86% of students gained grades 9-4, 47% 9-7 and 14% gained a grade 9.
