At The Turing School, our ambitious vision created in partnership with parents and community members serve as the foundation of our thriving school community. We are proud of our strong community ties, unwavering commitment to inclusion and active involvement in local initiatives. Our focus on aspiration, respect, innovation, and diversity fosters an environment where students, parents, external partners, teachers, and leaders alike are eager to contribute to our collective success.
Empowering Student Leadership
Our students are the driving force behind our school's success and we encourage them to take on various leadership roles and responsibilities across pastoral and academic domains. Opportunities include positions on the student council, subject leaders and participation in our peer mentoring programme. These roles enable students to develop essential skills such as communication, teamwork, and problem-solving, preparing them for their future endeavours.
We wholeheartedly believe in the power of collaboration and our community partnerships stand as a testament to this belief. Our involvement in local initiatives such as the Social Action Committee and Eastbourne Youth Radio demonstrates our dedication to fostering civic engagement and social responsibility among our students. Our active participation in charity fundraising events not only strengthens our bond with the community but also cultivates a sense of altruism in our students. Our relentless commitment has been nationally recognised through shortlisting for the Times Educational Supplement (TES) Community Engagement Initiative of the Year Award.
We recognise the vital role parents play in their children's education and actively encourage open communication and collaboration. We invite parents to participate in decision-making processes, attend school events, and share their expertise, ensuring a supportive network that empowers our students to reach their full potential. This strong community partnership enriches our school and helps us drive our ambitious shared vision forward.
Our unwavering commitment to the local community is an integral part of The Turing School's identity. We actively seek partnerships with local businesses, organisations, and charities, providing our students with valuable real-world experiences and insights. We also regularly lead social action initiatives and these achievements are frequently celebrated in local media and not only strengthen our ties with the community but also contribute positively to the growth and development of our students, equipping them with the skills necessary to thrive in a rapidly changing world.
