Welcome to Gorse Hill School
Gorse Hill School is a one which believes in the unlimited potential of every child, where every child can be successful.
All members of our school community are encouraged to be the best version of themselves, all of the time, and this ethos is underpinned by our CARE values: Courage, Appreciation, Respect, Responsibility and Excellence, which encourage our community to take care of ourselves, others and the world we live in. Our core values enable our pupils to grow into responsible, independent and considerate citizens.
C - We show courage when faced with a challenge;
A - We show appreciation for the rights, faiths and beliefs of others;
R - We respect and take responsibility for ourselves, each other and our environment;
E - We aim for excellence through having high expectations.
We are exceptionally proud of our school and the community we serve, one that is rich in diversity, making our school a wonderful community for our pupils to learn and grow.
At Gorse Hill, we pride ourselves on the principles of high-quality teaching and learning and our talented staff are driven to provide quality educational experiences and opportunities for all of our pupils through a broad and ambitious curriculum offer.
We value close partnership working with parents and have an 'open door' policy here at Gorse Hill. We are always more than happy to discuss your children with you or welcome prospective new parents for a tour of the school. If you do have any questions or queries, please do visit our school office where our staff will be happy to help you.
As Principal of Gorse Hill School, I would like to extend a warm welcome and very much look forward to meeting you.
