Welcome to Greatfields School which lies within the heart of the Gascoigne community in Barking, East London.
The school opened in September 2016 with 120 Year 7 students and we 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. 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 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.
Head of School
