At Guilsborough, we believe that learning should be enjoyable and challenging. This belief, combined with the excellent teaching skills and commitment of our staff and the enthusiasm and hard work of our pupils, lies at the heart of our success.

Excellent academic achievements

We are committed to the achievement of every individual pupil and to providing high standards of teaching and learning. Our reputation with the local and wider community rests on consistently providing quality education for pupils of all abilities.

Our pupils' excellent academic achievements stand out in the national league tables. Every year our most able pupils achieve high results and succeed in entering some of the UK’s top universities. We also provide strong support for alternative routes to higher qualifications post-18.  We support this via our excellent Careers programme. We also hold the prestigious CEIAG award (Career Education, Information and Guidance).

Support for children of all abilities

We are committed to a comprehensive intake and accept pupils of all abilities and strive to meet their needs.  We’re an inclusive school community with pupils from a wide variety of different social and cultural backgrounds, as well as pupils with special educational needs. We aim to challenge all our pupils, regardless of ability, to reach their full potential and celebrate their successes.

We nurture individual strengths and encourage our students to explore a wide variety of interests within and beyond the school curriculum. Our aim is to develop thoughtful, kind and considerate adults who will not only contribute to the school but also to the wider community

Personal development

Students' personal development and happiness are vital. Our extensive programme of extra-curricular activities, including excellent music, drama and sports provision, supports this process. We expect high standards of behaviour and seek to build strong relationships between staff and pupils. We foster considerate and responsible attitudes and behaviour through a strong Life Skills programme.
