Gayhurst is a truly special, happy and purposeful community, where your children will benefit from an excellent foundation to learning and personal development in their formative years, preparing them suitably for many of the challenges they will encounter throughout their lives. Gayhurst is a nurturing environment that enables boys and girls to thrive alongside one another and all are encouraged to be curious and adventurous in their learning, exploring new topics and developing new skills, talents and interests.
Educating children aged from 3 to 11 years old, Gayhurst is committed to offering its pupils a broad, rounded, co-educational experience in a happy and caring academic environment, where children’s pastoral needs, happiness and wellbeing are paramount. Appreciating how quickly the world and education are changing, we are focused on enriching children through all of their educational experiences and developing their skills and character so that they become confident, independent and resilient individuals. Focusing on their personal development alongside their academic and physical development enables them to develop leadership and growth mindsets, which result in pupils who can persevere, problem solve and make decisions.
With subject specialist teachers, dedicated facilities and a spacious, green site, we blend traditional and modern teaching approaches to provide children with an excellent educational experience that promotes their academic, physical, creative and social development. We are committed to ensuring that our children are respectful, courteous, well-rounded and grounded. Their personal development is further enhanced through focused pastoral care from warm and caring staff. Children’s mental health and wellbeing is a high priority and our staff offer great care and support that is second to none.
Being unique in the local area for offering co-education, we value the opportunities for boys and girls to learn alongside one another and also from one another, building respect and reflecting the society that they will live and work in. Co-education also enhances the family ethos of the school and allows siblings to be educated together and benefit from shared experiences. Partnership and relationships with parents are also vitally important and encouraged within our community.
I thank you for visiting our website, which gives a deep insight to what experiences and opportunities our pupils are offered and seize with great enthusiasm. I sincerely hope that you will be inspired and encouraged to come and visit us in person, where you will then experience at first hand, our wonderful atmosphere, beautiful site and child-centred approach. I would be delighted to meet you, show you around and assist you in making the most difficult of choices about your child’s education, discussing what role Gayhurst could play.
Gayhurst would certainly have a positive impact upon your child and their development, enabling them to enjoy their primary educational experience and become confident, independent and resilient individuals who are well-prepared for transition to secondary school and many of the challenges they will face. Most importantly of all, they would have the happiest of times doing so.
