Please take a look at our new information for prospective parents:
I am delighted that you are visiting our website and I would like to take this opportunity to let you know a little bit more about us! We are a school that is at the very heart of its community. We pride ourselves in knowing every pupil as an individual and want to ensure that we provide every pupil with a chance to thrive whilst they are at school.
Emotional wellbeing comes first at Georgian Gardens and as one of the only ‘Thrive’ Schools in West Sussex we are fortunate to have trained staff who are always available to help both our pupils and their families. We have a full time learning mentor to support pupil well-being and our family support worker is always available to parents if they require support with just about anything at home.
Pupils at Georgian Gardens are offered a rich and broad curriculum. The Arts play a major part in our school and we hold the Arts Mark Gold which recognises the quality of provision both in the visual and wider arts categories. Many pupils take part in musical tuition and all pupils have a day a term with a music and dance specialist teacher. We even have our own rock band!
The school was recognised for its excellence in sports provision last year and was awarded the highest Platinum Award, highlighting the excellent range of opportunities on offer to our pupils.
Our range of extra-curricular opportunities is very diverse! We really believe in trying to find the ‘thing’ that inspires your child’s ‘passion’, which ignites them and helps then to grow. We have clubs where pupils can learn French, learn to knit, play chess, extensive sports clubs and even an opportunity to learn how to build a battery powered car!
As we all know, things have had to be slightly altered now, as we find ourselves in difficult times due to Covid-19. However, we are still striving to make further developments to the excellent facilities at the school and we are delighted to announce that we have had a brand new library installed over the summer holiday. We have also had a new potting area created in our gardens, as we love to get the children outside to grow flowers, fruit and veg.
As a school we always work closely with our families to strive towards the very best outcomes for your child. As Headteacher, I sincerely believe that we should not simply expect children to fit into a ‘system’, but that we should work together to create an environment in which your child feels happy safe and secure, enabling them to flourish both emotionally and academically in their own dynamic ways.
I hope this website, together with our prospectus and video tours will give you an insight into our happy school. I am always happy to speak to prospective families about the school and welcome you to contact me via the school office or to attend one of our virtual school tours in November, please contact our school office for more information.
Thank you for your interest in Georgian Gardens, warmest wishes
Miss A Bowers, Headteacher
Y4 have done some Covid-safe foraging to help them understand the food eaten by Stone Age people.
Suffice to say that Y6 have had an awesome day!
Anyone at GG for cakes?
We really miss having visitors in school which is added to by knowing they are missing out on the great displays we are known for. Here is a flavour of how vibrant our corridors are.
During the week YR, 2 and 5 have had a visit from our local firefighters. Their talk was really informative and the children loved seeing the appliance.
We had such a brilliant day in year 5 today working on our Design Technology projects with cams and followers. Everyone worked so well, problem solving and working together, persevering and mastering new skills. We are so impressed with them all!
Year 1 have created these fabulous stormy scenes as part of the follow up from their visit from Grace Darling. They used both poster paint and acrylic, with collage.
Year 2 had some excitement this morning. Footprints were found in the classrooms so they asked Miss Bowers to phone the dragon police! They’ve written about the footprints today and will be drawing pictures tomorrow.
Year 6 had to draw a friend on a potato then describe what is great about them. A lovely way to reconnect after lockdown.
