Welcome to Greatfields School which lies within the heart of the Gascoigne community in Barking, East London.
We opened in September 2016 and currently have Years 7-11, with approximately 750 students on roll. We will eventually grow to become a 10 form entry school with 1,800 pupils, including a Sixth Form, in purpose-built new accommodation. We are currently in Phase Two of our permanent site and the final Phase is due to be completed in 2021/22. 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.
