The Hulya Turkish School meet regularly at Connaught School in Aldershot. The school is run by volunteer parents and its aim is to help children in the Turkish community get in touch with their cultural heritage and learn their mother tongue. The school offers courses alongside the National Curriculum leading to qualifications in GCSE, AS and A2 Level Turkish, which are taken in addition to mainstream school examinations.

The school is staffed by professional, qualified teachers that have been employed by the Turkish National Education Office. It also offers support on mathematics and science to students from different backgrounds regardless of their race and origin and is open on Saturday and Sunday from 10.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. Morning instruction is focused on academic learning and the afternoon session is focused on the teaching of traditional Turkish folk dancing and Turkish music lessons. The school is not for profit but fees are required to cover the cost of the school’s expenses and can vary depending on the number of students attending each session.

Take One Picture is the National Gallery's countrywide scheme for primary schools. Each year the Gallery focuses on one painting from the collection to inspire cross-curricular work in primary classrooms. During a one-day Continuing Professional Development course at the Gallery teachers are given a print of a painting. The challenge is then for schools to use the image imaginatively in the classroom, both as a stimulus for artwork, and for work in more unexpected curriculum areas. National Gallery Education then displays a selection of the work in the annual Take One Picture exhibition at the National Gallery and on their website.
