Principal, Jane Austen College
Summer Turner was appointed as Jane Austen College's Principal in 2022, after becoming the Head of School in 2021. She joined Jane Austen College in 2020 as Vice Principal, where she led on the school's re-opening during Covid-19, preparations for GCSE exams this summer, and a new strategy for improving the educational outcomes for students with the most barriers to learning.
In 2018 Ms Turner led curriculum reform across the Inspiration Trust's family of schools in her role as Director of Curriculum. She is a nationally respected expert and author on curriculum and leadership. Ms Turner also has a long history of training senior leaders, led Key Stage 3 English at Oak National Academy and has worked as an Associate Principal within the Inspiration Trust. We’re looking forward to her leading our school with her wealth of experience.
