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 800 students on roll. Our Sixth Form will open in September 2022 and we will eventually grow to become a ten form entry school will approximately 1800 students. 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 to compete with any other child in the country. Greatfields is built on three simple principles:
1) A culture in every classroom in which students are working harder than the teacher, are not afraid to make mistakes and can become independent learners.
2) A culture of positive behaviour with high behavioural expectations for our students and strong relationships between staff and students.
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. We work tirelessly with our students, parents, teachers and governors to ensure that we are building a school of which we can all be proud.
I do hope you’ll come and join us.
