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 will focus 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. In addition we are developing two areas of specialism; science & engineering, and music. All of our children, including those whose main interests lie outside the specialist subjects, can benefit from the additional resources and enrichment activities that our specialist focus will provide, as well as from generic “life” skills associated with the chosen subjects.
Provide a caring environment where staff know each of the children by name
With an intake of 150 our school will be substantially smaller than most 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 encourage continuation of that close parental involvement at secondary level.
