Overview

Turing House School is an inspirational new 11-19 secondary school, currently with years 7 - 10, and has a strong focus on Science, Engineering and Music. Our founding cohort will enter KS4 in September, and we will have a Sixth Form in 2020. Our first two years have established us as a successful and exceptionally popular school, being oversubscribed with waiting lists for each year group.

The school’s permanent site in Whitton will be ready in 2020, and until then we are based in high quality accommodation in Teddington and Hampton. The intake will eventually be 150 per year but is capped at 100-125 while we are in our temporary home.

Russell Education Trust (RET)

 

The Russell Education Trust is an academy trust with five secondary schools. RET is sponsored by Education London (EL) in partnership with a number of outstanding schools and academies, senior inspectors, academics and education leaders. RET is using the experience of EL and all our trustees and partners to implement national best practice in our free schools. We aim to work together to play a full part in training the teachers and headteachers of tomorrow. 

Our approach is based on the practice in the very best schools in which each child’s needs and aspirations are met in a stimulating and safe environment. We understand that excellent discipline, and the security of each pupil to both express individuality and take responsibility at school, are fundamental to personal, social and academic success. We know that in the best schools and academies, pupils are not only taught exceptionally well, but are also trained and encouraged to progress to the jobs, training and higher education most suited to their talents and abilities, irrespective of their social or economic circumstances.
