Welcome to Goresbrook School Virtual Open Evening!

Dear Year 6 Parents and Students,

In previous years we have held an open evening so you can come and find out a little bit more about Goresbrook School and life as a secondary school student. Sadly, this year, this isn’t possible as we are unable to open the school building to large numbers of people.

We are however, determined to ensure that any Year 6 student and their families have the opportunity to find out about our ethos, curriculum and facilities. Please watch the short video below which will provide you with some information about our secondary school. If you have a child in Year 6 currently, please do watch this with them.

If you need any further information about our school please do not hesitate to contact me at secondaryoffice@goresbrookschool.org.uk or on 0208 597 6666. You can also read more about our school by clicking on this link.

Kind regards,

Megan Harris
Secondary Principal

Oversubscription Criteria

If the number of preferences for the school is more than the number of places available, places will be allocated in the following priority order:

  1. Children who are, or were, in Local Authority care;
  2. Children with siblings at the school;
  3. Children who live nearest to the school, measured in kilometers in a straight line (as the crow flies);

If two or more children are ranked equally on any of the above criteria, random allocation will determine which child or children are offered places. In this case, a child or children’s names will be randomly selected from a total list of tied applicants by someone unconnected with the school. 
Pupils with statements of Special Educational Need will not be subject to the application of the oversubscription criteria. They will be allocated a place at Goresbrook School if their statement nominates the school as being the most suitable.
