Welcome to the Gurney Pease Academy section of The Education Village Academy Trust Website.
At Gurney Pease Academy (part of The Education Village Academy Trust) we are all very proud of our school! We are known for providing a welcoming and caring atmosphere where children learn confidently in happy surroundings. Great care is taken to provide for the social, moral and educational needs of the individual child. Our school is a place where mutual respect is encouraged and opportunities for challenge are provided. Our children achieve good academic standards in literacy and mathematics, compared with similar schools, and we are exceptionally proud of their achievements.
The children experience an environment where everyone is encouraged to do their best in order to reach their full potential. During school and after school we offer a wide range of opportunities for children to develop further skills such as football, dance and drama. Whilst ensuring that children receive excellent teaching in Literacy and Mathematics we believe that education should offer more and that most importantly it should be fun!
Gurney Pease Academy is a one-form entry school comprising of eight classes from Nursery to Year 6. The main building has undergone major improvements in recent years and we have worked hard to create an extremely bright, colourful and stimulating school. We have an equally impressive playground with a climbing frame, football pitches and extensive range of games and equipment for the children to use at playtimes. We have a beautiful wooded area where the children can enjoy natural shade in the summer months and our Early Years outdoor area is also very well equipped!
As a small school we have very close links with the community and we enjoy many advantages that come with our size. We have an immensely dedicated team of teachers and support staff whose experience, expertise and efforts make the school come alive. We enjoy an enviable partnership with our Governors and parents. We are delighted to have joined the Education Village Academy Trust.
We hope the friendships the children make during their time with us will be long lasting and based on mutual respect and care. We endeavour to prepare children for later life and hope that their time at our school will not only enable them to achieve high academic standards but also provide them with some happy memories.
Our school really is an amazing place so please come along and see for yourselves. We hope you will be part of our future and we look forward to working with you.
Principal of Gurney Pease Academy
"This is a good school. Pupils make good progress in English and Mathematics from when they join the school to the end of Year 6. Teaching is good across the school and some is outstanding. Teachers have high expectations of their pupils and effectively match work to their needs."
