It is with pride that I write to introduce myself as the Executive Headteacher of Gilbrook School and Kilgarth School, jointly recognised as The Aspire Schools Federation, and I would like to extend to you a warm welcome to our website.
The whole ethos of both schools is based on care, responsibility and proactive behaviour management, where mutual respect is of prime importance.The singularity of vision shared by staff enables us to provide the highest quality education and support for all our pupils. Indeed, staff will always go ‘the extra mile’ to create a caring environment in which young people are encouraged to manage and overcome their difficulties within a climate that promotes curiosity and learning; enabling them to be the best they can be.
Our high expectations empower pupils to make outstanding progress academically, morally and socially. In addition, we focus on their place in the community, encouraging their development into active and responsible members of society.I hope you enjoy our website and should you wish to find out more about our outstanding school, and strong links with Gilbrook School, please contact the Head of Gilbrook, Mrs K Brown.
Mr S Baker OBE, Principal
As the Head of Gilbrook, I would like to welcome you to our website. We are a maintained special primary school for pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties, and we believe that we provide a nurturing and caring environment to ensure the best possible outcomes for our pupils. We look at the individual needs of each child and build a curriculum designed to enhance their learning and social experiences which is stimulating and challenging, whilst developing their natural curiosity and love of learning.
Our core ethos is “together we can achieve”. This underpins our belief that to truly succeed we need a cohesive approach which involves families and other agencies. With this in mind we set high expectations for our pupils, linked into their personal aspirations.
As a staff team we aim to provide a caring, nurturing environment which allows pupils to access, enjoy and make progress in their educational journey. We promote an atmosphere where all are encouraged to show an interest and care in the welfare of others. This is reflected in the attitude as a whole of all those connected with our school, forming central part to our core values.
Please have a look at the booklet we have put together (see link below) and if you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact myself or Steven Baker, our executive Headteacher.
Mrs K Brown, Head of Gilbrook
