Welcome From the Headteacher
I am delighted to welcome you to the Gaynes School website. As part of the Loxford School Trust we are able to work within a hub of schools, led by Loxford School, an Outstanding school, thus ensuring that our staff are able to deliver the highest educational standards. This enables us to stay ahead of an ever evolving education system and a constantly changing society.
The Trust strongly believes in developing students, so that they are able to achieve their potential both academically and as members of our community. We work on the traditional values of respect, discipline and responsibility to prepare our students for the challenges of examinations, social interactions and the world of work. We want all of our students to find their passion and have the tools to pursue their dreams.
I feel privileged to have the opportunity to lead Gaynes School over the coming years and look forward to working with you to ensure we achieve the very best for all of our young people.
Our vision is simple, “that no child is left behind”
Students are at the centre of everything we do and we aim to give all the necessary foundations for success by helping students develop the skills and attributes that will provide them with real life-chances. Students are expected to work hard and to achieve their individual best academically, to develop skills relevant to the 21st Century and to develop the self-confidence and sense of purpose necessary for success in a highly competitive global society.
Gaynes School will provide a safe, yet challenging environment where students can succeed and excel. We will develop a strong pastoral system and curriculum to allow us to ensure that our students are happy, safe and challenged in all they do at school.
Gaynes School is an inclusive school and we pride ourselves on the fact that we are a family. We will work closely with our parents and our community in order to achieve the best for all in our school.
We aim to:
- Achieve exam success for all – we want our pupils to have as many choices as possible, with a strong foundation of GCSEs.
- Ensure that every child leaves our school knowing themselves as an individual, as a member of a team and as a citizen.
- Create a culture of learning for life.
- Provide the skills needed for self-management, resilience and self-worth.
- Give opportunities and experiences outside of the classroom to enrich our pupils.
We believe that every student has the potential to achieve greatness and will work with every student to ensure that they get there. Our school is committed to the success of each of our pupils.
Our website should answer many of your queries but we always welcome visitors to our school.
