Information about the school

Turner Schools is a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) based in Folkestone on the beautiful Kent coast.

Our mission is to set a new standard in non-selective education, empowering our pupils and students with cultural capital. In this way we will contribute to the regeneration of the region; we call this mission sea-change.

Following Aristotle's philosophy, we believe that educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. Accordingly, we have encapsulated the Trusts ethos and values in the acronym HEART meaning we have:

E: Enthusiasm - in attitude and to nurture it in others be they pupils/students/scholars, parents or colleagues; an

A: Academic subject-based curriculum - tried and tested subjects delivered in coherent sequence

R: Reading for all - achieving chronological reading age as well as love of this enabling and vital skill; and

T: Teamwork - recognising that together we can achieve more than we can alone.

Our HEART model gives stakeholders, staff, pupils and parents a common language.

Our schools include:

Folkestone Primary Folkestone Academy; Morehall Primary; Martello Primary; and Turner Free School.
