Welcome to Goresbrook School Secondary
‘The wisest mind has something yet to learn’ – George Santayana
Goresbrook School Secondary opened in September 2016 in our brand new state-of-the-art building. Following the success of Goresbrook School Primary, our Secondary School currently provides an exceptional education to our Year 7 and 8 students.
We are all learners at Goresbrook from our youngest student, to our most senior members of staff, and we firmly believe that by learning together, we grow and succeed together. This commitment to learning by everybody in the school is key to ensuring that we all achieve our potential. I am extremely passionate and committed to seeing Goresbrook School and its students fulfil their full potential. The brilliant staff members at the school are central to us achieving this goal.
Your child’s secondary education will do so much to shape their character and personality, as well as their achievements. So it is for this reason that we have to get it right and provide the best education provision we possibly can. All of our staff truly believe that the students within the school can realise their aspirations whatever they may be, whether it is University or the career of their choice. We aim to offer a broad, engaging curriculum, which not only gives our students the opportunity to study their interests, but also provides them with skills that can be applied in all areas of life. We believe that using innovative, evidence-based teaching methods, and having high expectations of both students and staff are essential for this to be achieved.
The school’s culture and ethos will promote high aspirations and expectations, balanced with the highest level of care and support. It is our aim that your child will love coming to school, love learning, love being part of the school’s community and strive to be the best they can.
The landscape of education is changing rapidly, the competition for further and higher education places and jobs will become more challenging; therefore it is imperative that we work in partnership to ensure your child has the best start to their adult life and, also, that they have fond memories of their time at Goresbrook School.
Our school motto is ‘growth, belief, team’, because we truly believe that these three qualities will enable us all to achieve our aims.
