Gurney Pease Academy

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 children's mental health and well-being are of primary importance. Our school is a place where mutual respect is encouraged and opportunities for challenge are provided. Our children are encouraged to succeed academically to achieve good academic standards in literacy and mathematics and we are exceptionally proud of the achievements that they make.

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 their skills. Whilst ensuring that children receive excellent teaching in Literacy and Mathematics, we also 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 nine classes of The Gurney Pease Pod (2 year-old provision) through 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 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.

Alison Sinclair

Principal of Gurney Pease Academy

"Pupils are well behaved and their behaviour is consistently managed by staff. They move around school with little adult supervision and quickly settle into learning after breaks and at the start of the school day. They are polite and courteous and talk with pride about their school. They have positive attitudes and this supports learning well."
