Welcome to our Year 7 students

Welcome to our potential Year 7 students and families.

We were delighted to be oversubscribed in September 2023.

It is an exciting time to join Haileybury Turnford:

  • We have been successful with our bid to the Department for Education for fully funded new state-of-the-art buildings
  • Exam results continue to rise and we saw strong results from our Year 11 students in 2022 following the pandemic
  • Our Principal, Mr Newman, was awarded a Silver Award for Headteacher of the Year in a Secondary School in the Pearson National Teaching Awards, and many other members of staff were also successfully nominated and recognised in the 2023 awards.
  • One of our English teachers was awarded with a Certificate of Excellence for Outstanding New Teacher of the Year and one of our Design & Technology teachers was awarded with a Highly Commended certificate for Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School, in the Pearson National Teaching Awards in 2022
  • Our Safeguarding and Pastoral Team was awarded with a Certificate of Excellence in the Pearson National Teaching Awards in 2022 for the Unsung Heroes Award
  • We were nominated for Secondary School of the Year 2021 in the Pearson National Teaching Awards and one of our science teachers won a Silver Award for Outstanding New Teacher of the Year.
  • We also won an Outstanding Governor Award in the Hertfordshire Governance Awards in 2023.
  • We have been awarded two National School Attendance Awards for Autumn Term 2023/24 with our attendance being in the top 25% of Secondary Schools in England.

We look forward to working closely with students and families throughout Year 6 and Year 7 to support the successful transition to secondary school.
