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 young lives. We are proud that this is a school created with and for the community offering a transformational education to our children.
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 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 are in the process of constructing a state-of-the-art building to house the whole school as we grow. It will be equipped with outstanding facilities and, as part of our next Reception year group, your child would be amongst the first to experience them.
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 meeting you and your child.
Miss Clare Darley
