Overview

The John of Gaunt School is a unique, vibrant and highly successful school.  The School has a strong reputation for both academic and pastoral excellence and it is a great honour to be the Headteacher.

Whilst we are first and foremost a place of learning, we strive to ensure that students are academically nurtured and cared for in a safe environment in which they can be happy, grow, gain in confidence and be challenged to achieve in all aspects of school life.

Our school provides a learning environment that is rich in encouragement, and enthusiasm along with a belief in every individual.  We offer a curriculum and a pastoral system designed to enrich the learning experience of all our students, whatever their ability. Helping our young people develop into confident, sensitive and reflective adults is fundamental. During their time at The John of Gaunt School we will ensure young people meet or exceed their potential, this is achieved though outstanding teaching and careful support for each young person throughout their time with us.

We pride ourselves in being a community school, we thrive on strong supportive relationships with parents and carers and believe that students are best educated when parents, students and staff all work in unison.

At The John of Gaunt School we believe in regularly celebrating the success of learners, no matter how small the accomplishment. The school offers a wide range of extra-curricular clubs, before school, during lunch times and after school, as well as cultural trips and visits, foreign exchanges and residential trips, we believe these opportunities enrich the lives of our young people and enhance our already thriving curriculum offer.

We thoroughly enjoy having visitors and would like to encourage you to come in and visit us at any time, we have a fantastic reputation and are proud of the excellent recent OFSTED inspection. We would be delighted to show our school on a normal school day in order for you to sample our open, caring and nurturing ethos. If there is anything that we can help with, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
