Turves Green Boys' School

As the Headteacher at Turves Green Boys’ School I am focussed on making sure we secure the best outcomes possible for each individual pupil. Accessing a course at a top university, a highly sought after apprenticeship or entering employment with training is the norm for our pupils.

Significant changes to all areas of the school have been implemented over the last two terms that are improving every aspect of the school provision for the better. Whilst progressive in much of what we do we are very traditional with regards to discipline, manners and respect. Our expectations are high and this will always be the case. We know from experience that setting the bar high pushes everyone in the school community to achieve great things.

We also recognise that academic success alone is not the only aim of our work. Developing qualities and values that will allow your child to succeed in future endeavours is high on our agenda. Opportunities outside the taught curriculum will be plentiful and we encourage all to fully embrace everything the school has to offer.
