Turing House School is an inspirational growing 11-19 secondary school. This September we welcomed our fourth cohort into our sixth form. Our first nine years have established us as a successful and exceptionally popular school, being oversubscribed for every intake. In May 2018, we were delighted when Ofsted judged us as good overall with outstanding leadership and management as well as personal development, behaviour and welfare. In April 2022, we moved into our newly built permanent site in Whitton site with state-of-the-art facilities.

Our external results so far have been very pleasing, with 2022 and 2023 results at KS4 deemed to be significantly above national averages. All our post-16 students gained a place at university if that was their desired goal, with one student being placed at Cambridge in 2023.

To continue the vision for Turing House School, we need the very best staff who are able to embed our ethos into their teaching and wider school life. We have already created a wonderful environment for young people to learn and mature in and we continue to develop. Our aim is that all our students can be equipped to progress to the jobs, training and higher education most suited to their talents and abilities, irrespective of their social or economic circumstances and ultimately have high aspirations for themselves and their future.
