Turner 25 - Preparing our Pupils

As a Trust we work hard to ensure our pupils receive a high-quality and academically focused education, however this is by no means the limit of our ambitions. There is a wealth of evidence highlighting the challenges facing children who grow up in coastal communities like ours, and it is so important that we go beyond the classroom to support young people in all aspects of their lives.

Our eight schools serve pupils from 2-18 across Folkestone, Dover and Canterbury covering some of the most deprived communities in the South East, which is why we want to provide the extracurricular activities that we know will prove hugely important to their long-term development.    

Our ‘T25’ experiences can broadly be divided into the following categories:
