Just like the famous artist, Joesph Turner, who was an artist famous for his expressive colourisations, and imaginative landscapes, we in Turner value artist creativity and imagination as being just as important, and linked to academic success. We challenge our students to think outside the box, express themselves in a variety of different mediums and work collaboratively just like the different colours in a painting, or how water colours blend seamlessly together. Turner was not only a brilliant artist, but hard working and committed to what he did, as he left behind more than 550 oil paintings, 2,000 watercolours, and 30,000 works on paper.
In Turner we value passion and commitment, making sure our children do the task in hand to the best of their ability and give 110% effort every time. As head of Turner house, I aim to bring inspiration, enthusiasm and the joy of creativity to my leadership of our house. Turner shows us that “As much as talent counts, effort counts twice.”
