About our Prep School

I would like to welcome you and your family to Gosfield School. We believe that every child is special and as such it is our duty to ensure that everyone achieves their full potential in all areas of their development. We want our pupils to develop a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their lives. Our aim, therefore, is to provide every child with the very best education and support within an environment that is welcoming, safe and happy. The Prep school caters for children at the very beginning of their Gosfield learning journey in the Early Years Foundation stage to Year 6 and is located at Meadow Court, a purpose-built school set in extensive woodland. Learning takes place both inside and outside of the classroom with dedicated Forest School sessions for all year groups and a real focus on extracurricular activities. 

Our Forest School sessions allow our pupils to learn and develop skills that we believe will be essential in our ever changing next generation careers. High academic standards and a rich and varied curriculum, delivered through personalised pathways, encourage our pupils to do their absolute best in everything they do. A strong focus on English and Maths is supported by subject specialist teaching for Science, Spanish, Computing, Food Technology, PE, Music, Performing Arts, DT and Drama. At Gosfield we foster an environment of mutual respect, personal independence and a caring and helpful attitude towards others. Our children are caring, polite and helpful towards each other and our community. We pride ourselves on our excellent pastoral care, if children are happy, they will learn and make progress. The partnership between home and school is essential to ensure that our pupils are provided with the best possible start to life. We welcome parents into the school to share their child’s learning journey many times throughout the academic year and operate an ‘open-door’ policy. We look forward to welcoming you to Gosfield and for your child to be part of the warm, purposeful and engaging learning environment in our school.
