Our Core Values

Everyone at our School, pupils, teachers, leaders, support staff and governors are committed to three touchstones. These guide our direction, influence our decision making and provide foundations for our pupils’ experience during their formative years as part of our family.

This is delivered through an environment in which individuals are provided with the foundations on which to grow and develop in all aspects of their educational and pastoral lives. Pupils are educated in a small and caring setting and encouraged to achieve their personal best in all aspects of their lives. Every individual’s contribution is counted and valued within a friendly and supportive ethos, where pupils and staff inspire one another, and in turn inspire others.

Grow – Grow the Gosfield Family

Rooted in 110 acres of fertile North Essex soil, we provide the perfect setting to grow stronger yet more compassionate; more self-assured and more curious, and ready to embrace a world of opportunity. Pupils gradually grow to become ready to take responsibility for their own actions and their consequences; and to stand up for others less fortunate.

Achieve – Achieve Beyond Expectation

Whether Nursery toddlers exploring the forest, Prep pupils grappling with phonics, Senior students striving for better grades or competing for the region, Sixth Formers applying for university or Governors investing in new developments; everyone is encouraged to exceed their personal best and achieve beyond expectations.

Inspire – Inspire Confidence to Embrace Challenge

We believe that confidence is the result of growing and achieving; and a magical ingredient that converts challenges into opportunities for the fortunate few who possess it…. All that we do is designed to inspire confidence to embrace challenges; and every day our pupils inspire our teachers, too.
