Welcome to Greatfields School which lies within the heart of the Gascoigne community in Barking, East London.
We opened in September 2016 with 120 Year 7 students and currently have Years 7 and 8. We will eventually grow to a 10 form entry 11-18 school with 1,800 pupils in purpose-built new accommodation. We have now moved into Phase One of our permanent site and Phase Two is due to be completed by September 2019. Our mission is to provide the young people of this community with a first class education and to equip them with the skills and knowledge they will need to achieve their future dreams. Greatfields is built on three simple principles:
1) High quality teaching and learning for all students.
2) A culture of positive behaviour.
3) High aspirations for all students.
I passionately believe that a high quality education is the most important factor in providing our young people with the greatest chance to succeed in life. I will continue to work tirelessly with students, parents, governors, teachers and other members of the community to ensure that we build a school of which we can all be proud.
