Our Local Need page describes the strong demand for co-educational community secondary places across the Middlesex side of Richmond Borough. While there is demand from several wards, there is a particularly strong case for providing more places of this type in the central areas of West Twickenham, Fulwell, Hampton Hill and North Teddington.
Our Free School proposal made it clear that, if a site local to these areas could not be found, then we would create an Admissions Point to act as a centre of gravity for our intake. The Admissions Point enables children who live furthest from other co-educational secondaries to have priority, but does not prevent families from other wards from gaining access to the school too.
Turing House governors are committed to striking an appropriate balance between serving families living near our Admissions Point as well as those living closest to the permanent school site. We will continue to monitor the inclusivity of our school to ensure that we are meeting this aim. In doing so we will of course consider the timing of our move to the permanent site, and the relative size of our future intake (which has been temporarily restricted to a lower number at the Opening Site).
Please see our Admissions Policy page for details of how our Admissions Point is being used, and for maps of our intake to date.
