Learning at Goresbrook School focuses on two broad aims:

  1. To ensure mastery of knowledge and skills that allow pupils to be successful in all areas of the curriculum
  2. To foster an ethos of curiosity and love of learning

At Goresbrook School we understand that intelligence is not fixed but can be grown through hard work, resilience and courage. We recognise that pupils learn at different rates and in different ways; our ‘child-by-child’ approach allows us to tailor for each individual with appropriate support and challenge in their learning.

Teaching and learning methods used in the classroom takes into account current research into the best practice globally. Our staff are involved in action research projects to refine and improve their teaching and recognise that they too are on a learning journey.
