Turnstone house, a brand new 52 week school and children’s home for boys and girls is planned to open in September 2012, expanding the excellent and innovative work of SES.
SES is planning to open a brand new facility called Turnstone House on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk. It will build on the high quality reputation already developed at Avocet House for innovative and outstanding work with children and families.
Turnstone House occupies a Grade 2 listed country house in 7 acres of parkland. Initially it will have space for 8 children with phase two of the development seeing a stable block annexe being renovated and extended to provide further space potentially for two or three independent living places. The house itself and its residential annexe will retain all the virtues of a domestic, family environment created at Avocet House.
Most excitingly Turnstone House will have a purpose built, single storey, eco-friendly, sedum roofed, state of the art Learning Centre looking out over the grounds and lake. There couldn’t be better outlook (or a more therapeutic one!) for a work environment.
