Turves Green Girls’ School aims to provide ALL pupils with an education which will equip them for the demands of working life, yet also enable them to take full advantage of leisure opportunities offered to them.
We are committed to offering all pupils a curriculum which includes, yet extends beyond, the basic requirements of the National Curriculum. The flexible, yet broad and balanced, curriculum offered is designed to equip pupils with the wide range of experiences and skills needed to prepare them for life outside school.
Using information provided by primary school records and end of Key Stage 2 National Curriculum test results, pupils are grouped according to ability so that each pupil can study at a pace suited to her needs. Transfer of pupils between groups is reviewed regularly by a programme which continuously assesses and monitors the progress and achievement of each pupil.
We place great emphasis on academic success but we are equally concerned that our pupils should be socially well-adjusted, confident and valued as individuals.
