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 supports 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
an interest in the wider world.
Provide a broad curriculum with an enhanced focus on STEM subjects, and Music
Our broad curriculum caters for all interests and future career paths. We are developing a particular
focus on STEM (Science, Technology
Engineering & Maths) and Music. All of
our students, including those whose main interests lie in other areas of the curriculum, can benefit from
enrichment activities and the generic “life” skills associated with these subjects.
Provide a caring environment where staff know each of the students by name
With an intake of up to 150 students a year our school is smaller than many other secondary schools.
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, so we
encourage continuation of that close parental involvement at secondary level.
