A NEW HOME FOR TURING HOUSE SCHOOL
The project to open a permanent home for Turing House School has a spring in its step as initial design work gets underway. The team behind the plans for a permanent home for Turing House School have this week completed a second round of initial design meetings with the contractors bidding to build the school. This is a very positive step for all involved and follows completion of the acquisition of the Hospital Bridge Road site by the ESFA last month.
Colin Mackinlay, Head of Turing House School said, “We are delighted that the design process for the new permanent home is well underway. We are looking forward to sharing the draft plans with our school community, our new neighbours and the wider borough later in the year as part of a consultation process and ahead of the planning application being submitted.
“We are also looking forward to welcoming our new Year 7s into the Clarendon School site in September. The ESFA will be undertaking works over the summer months to have it ready for our new intake including; labs, workshops, ICT, music and both indoor and outdoor spaces for PE.”
Since opening in September 2015 Turing House has quickly gained a reputation as one of the great local secondary schools. The Hospital Bridge Road site will allow the school to complete its growth in a permanent and sustainable home suitable for the demands of the modern curriculum.
