Welcome to Turves Green Girls' School
Neil Jones, Headteacher
Turves Green Girls’ School is a community that typifies the best in our society. Our pupils are keen, resilient learners, ambitious for themselves and the future of their area. They bring energy and creativity to all they do, and we are rightly proud of them.
Our staff works as a team. We are driven by a sense that the young people we serve deserve the very best education we can provide. Our senior leaders and the Governing Board understand that our teachers and support staff are the key to unlocking our young people’s potential, and therefore we place the welfare and professional development of our staff as central. We are building our success outward from a very simple premise: everyone is important. As a small school, we value every individual. We nurture individual talents and structure support to meet individual needs. Our success, recognised by our recent OFSTED, is based on being a caring community. As a single sex school, we are able to create an environment where excellence is applauded not mocked. In 2015, for example, saw our Year 11 Netball Team win not just the District championship but the County championships as well. Our exam results since 2010 have regularly scored amongst the best in South Birmingham.
Our lunchtime and after school clubs run every day and cater for almost every taste, such as street dance, cricket, athletics, drama, football, public art and so on. We run a daily after-school / homework club until 5pm to assist working parents and to support pupil learning.
We are an outward-facing school. Partnerships with other schools, colleges, universities, charities and businesses offer our young people opportunities to develop their academic interests, explore new experiences and investigate career pathways. As a cooperative school, we are part of a cooperative school family which shares our values.
It is our aim that Turves Green pupils, after five happy and challenging productive years with us, should leave our school as well-qualified young adults who have a broad outlook, a concern and respect for others, and a self-confidence which will enable them to be successful in achieving their goals and fulfilling their ambitions, and to play a valuable part in the future of their world.
As the headteacher of our wonderful small school, I am determined to make every child’s time with us as happy, safe and productive. Please contact me to arrange a tour.
