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, 8, 9 and 10. We will eventually grow to a 10 form entry 11-18 school with 1,800 pupils in purpose-built new accommodation. We have moved into Phase Two of our permanent site and the final Phase Three is due to be completed by September 2020. 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) Teaching and learning which stretches and challenges our 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.
Welcome to our Year 6 students!
