Turing House

Vision and Values

We have established a high quality, inclusive school, with a clear focus on high performance for children from 11 to 18.  We instil good behaviour and attitudes towards others as the basis for excellence at every stage of school life.   Our school is enabling children from all backgrounds to make exceptional progress. It attracts, develops and retains outstanding staff and we are supporting them to inspire our pupils. Our Turing Values of Modesty, Curiosity, Leadership, Creativity and Perseverance are promoted through all that we do. 

Our school aims to:

Support all students to achieve their academic and social potential

Turing House is committed to the highest possible academic standards, whilst delivering a broad and balanced curriculum. It values and support the achievements and aspirations of every student, whatever their ability and potential.

As parents we know how important it is for our children to thrive in all kinds of ways beyond academic achievement. Turing House focuses on more than just exam results, encouraging self-esteem and respect for others, independence and responsibility, creative and critical thinking, innovation, problem-solving and a passionate interest in the wider world.

Provide a special focus on science, engineering, and music

Our broad-based curriculum will cater for all interests and future career paths. We are also developing two areas of specialism; STEM (Science, Technology Engineering & Maths) and music.  All of our students, including those whose main interests lie outside the specialist subjects, can benefit from the resources and enrichment activities that our specialist focus will provide, as well as from generic “life” skills associated with those subjects. 

Provide a caring environment where staff know each of the children by name

With an intake of up to 150 students a year our school is smaller than many other secondary schools, and tutor groups are limited to 25 pupils per class.

Encourage parental engagement

Many local parents are very engaged with their children's primary school, both educationally and socially.  We know that schools can provide valuable social networks for families in our community, and we encourage continuation of that close parental involvement at secondary level.

Vision picture
Encourage Responsibility for Self and Others

We believe that everyone in our school should behave in a responsible manner: with each other; with the school; and with the wider community. We model this to students in the way the school is run by being a responsible employer and consumer as well as having clear plans of how we support our local and global community. Students participate in community programmes to achieve these goals and we are also working towards a Gold Standard Eco Schools Award.

Be a resource for the local community

When we move to our permanent home we would like our school to remain open in the evening and during school holidays as a community hub, offering a range of activities for people of all ages and interests. 

A fantastic opportunity for the borough to get a school that is shaped by its own local community.
