Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Haileybury Turnford.  Our vision is to be the best school we can be, developing every aspect of our students to ensure that they can thrive, flourish and succeed at school, and be ready to successfully move into training, apprenticeships, employment and higher education beyond school as confident and articulate young adults.

We believe that excellent teaching, academic success, the best pastoral care and enriching co-curricular opportunities are the hallmarks of an excellent school.  By drawing on Haileybury’s 150 years of outstanding achievement, combined with Turnford’s strong sense of community, we aim to create an exceptional school.

At Haileybury Turnford we expect our students to respect each other and all adults in the school, and do everything with pride and ambition.  We recognise that our success is dependent on a good and strong partnership with the parents and carers of our students, and we therefore look forward to working with you to provide your son or daughter with the best possible preparation for their adult life.  If parents and carers have a query about any aspect of your child’s education please contact us at the earliest opportunity.

Our website is designed to provide key information for students, parents and carers and aims to give a flavour of our school community.  I hope that you find our website to be a useful resource.  I would encourage you to follow the links to our newsletters, Facebook and X (formerly Twitter) feeds and information about the partnership work with our sponsor, Haileybury, which provides fabulous opportunities for our students.  Please take the opportunity to visit us at the many school activities and events that run throughout the year.
