Parents and carers describe Turning Point Academy as a ‘lifeline’. Pupils describe the school as ‘amazing’. Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. During the inspection, pupils behaved exceptionally well in class, during assemblies and when talking with inspectors about their learning. Pupils’ attendance significantly improves as soon as they start at the school. Pupils say that they always feel safe in school. They understand about discrimination and bullying. They say that neither of these take place at this school. Staff have very high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and achievement. Staff also form strong and trusting bonds with pupils. As a result, pupils try hard and become increasingly resilient. This helps them to make strong progress in reading, writing, mathematics and other subjects. Pupils enjoy ice-skating, visiting museums and going to the theatre. Pupils told us about their visit to Manley Mere. During a trip to London, they had a tour of the Houses of Parliament. Pupils raise funds for good causes. For example, they have supported local homeless charities. Recently, pupils donated their old teddy bears to children in Syria. Pupils understand democratic principles and like to present their views on the school council.
This school is independently managed and its admission criteria may be selective. There is no set catchment area as pupils are admitted from a wide variety of postcodes and, in the case of boarding schools, from outside the UK. Contact the school directly or visit their website for more information on Admissions Policy and Procedures.
2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
