Turner Fenton is unique in that it is actually a merger of two high schools.

J.A. Turner Secondary School was founded in 1974. It was named after J. A. Turner, who was director of what was then called the Peel County Board of Education.

W. J. Fenton Secondary School was founded in 1972. It was named after William James Fenton, a pioneer educator in the region who taught at various schools in the Brampton area in the late 1800’s.

The two schools were located next to each other, and each operated independently until 1992.

The amalgamation into Turner Fenton Secondary School (TFSS) occurred in 1992. Post merger, Turner Fenton became a single school under one administration, with two campus buildings, the North Hall, and the South Hall.

Today, the school is rated as an excellent public high school, and it offers a wide assortment of courses for students.
