It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Goresbrook School.
We opened in September 2014 to provide an exceptional education for Barking and Dagenham children. As we began to imagine what Goresbrook School would eventually grow to be, our plans were shaped around the needs and aspirations of local families and the areas in which our pupils will grow up and enjoy their lives. We are proud that this is a school created with and for the community offering a transformational education to our children and young people.
Goresbrook School started with a cohort of enthusiastic and happy Reception pupils who have quickly become exceptional learners. They benefit from a remarkable, hand-picked team of teachers and support staff who have established tailored routines that help all children make friends, learn, play and develop. Goresbrook Nursery opened in September 2015, and our Secondary School welcomed its first 120 Year 7 students in September 2016.
Goresbrook is on a unique journey to becoming an all-through school for 3 to 18 year olds. This means that Reception pupils will have the opportunity to benefit from continuous excellence from their first day of school through to the end of Sixth Form. We have recently moved into our state-of-the-art building to house the whole school as we grow. It is equipped with outstanding facilities that benefit all of our pupils.
As well as enjoying the support of parents, the local community and the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, we are proud to be part of United Learning; a group of schools with the shared aim to bring out the best in everyone.
I very much look forward to welcoming you into our wonderful school.
