If you think about your best memories of learning and enjoyment and I amsure, like me,they revolve around experiencing active, engaging activities.Here at Gusford we have a desire to make learning engaging. Role play, hands on history, team sports, adventurous activities and parent/child workshops are all ways we try to engage children in learning. Alongside this is the aim to ensure the children have the basic building blocks for English and Maths. In the four years that I have been Headteacher here we have seen writing results rise by over 20% and maths results rise by 13%. This has been through focusing on each child and targeting their needs. Of course we still have improvements to make, like all schools, but one thing you can be sure of is that Gusford is a school where your child will not only have good memories of their learning but will develop an enthusiasm for their learning. We hope that this leaflet gives you the information that will help you decide if Gusford is the school for your child.
