The Sir William Turner Foundation


The Sir William Turner Foundation is a registered educational charity, Charity Number 1075225. The Foundation has eight Trustees, with a Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer as its officers.



The Foundation originates from the charitable bequest of Sir William Turner in his will of 1692, which led to the establishment of the Free School at Kirkleatham in 1709. The Foundation has had many changes in its long history. The last major one in 1999, following the merger in 1994 of Sir William Turner’s Sixth Form College and Cleveland Technical College Redcar. The Foundation is now based in Redcar & Cleveland College.



The Foundation makes annual grants to the college and schools in Redcar to support activities that fall outside the standard curriculum. These include educational visits and equipment to support student learning that do not qualify for regular curriculum funding. 


The Foundation also supports the college’s Achievement Awards with cash bursaries, recognising students, who have made the most significant achievements in each academic year in each of the College’s departments. 


GUIDELINES for applicants:

At present applications are limited to the three secondary schools in Redcar, Kirkleatham Hall School and the departments within Redcar & Cleveland College.
