I am delighted that you are visiting our website and I would like to take this opportunity to let you know a little bit more about us! We are a school that is at the very heart of its community. We pride ourselves in knowing every pupil as an individual and want to ensure that we provide every pupil with a chance to thrive whilst they are at school.
Emotional wellbeing comes first at Georgian Gardens and as one of the only ‘Thrive’ Schools in West Sussex we are fortunate to have trained staff who are always available to help both our pupils and their families. We have a full time learning mentor to support pupil well-being and our family support worker is always available to parents if they require support with just about anything at home.
Pupils at Georgian Gardens are offered a rich and broad curriculum. The Arts play a major part in our school and we hold the Arts Mark Gold which recognises the quality of provision both in the visual and wider arts categories. Many pupils take part in musical tuition and all pupils have a day a term with a music and dance specialist teacher. We even have our own rock band!
The school has been recognised for its excellence in sports provision and awarded the highest Platinum Award, highlighting the excellent range of opportunities on offer to our pupils.
Our range of extra-curricular opportunities is very diverse! We really believe in trying to find the ‘thing’ that inspires your child’s ‘passion’, which ignites them and helps then to grow. We have clubs where pupils can learn French, learn to knit, play chess, extensive sports clubs and even an opportunity to learn how to build a battery powered car!
We continue to further develop our excellent facilities at the school this summer we revamped our music studio and children love performing on the stage! We've also laid a new path around the woodland walk and created more outdoor growing areas as we love to get the children outside to grow flowers, fruit and veg. The library, refurbished in 2020 is loved by children and staff and it is lovely to see it being used fully now we are all back in school.
As a school we always work closely with our families to strive towards the very best outcomes for your child. As Headteacher, I sincerely believe that we should not simply expect children to fit into a ‘system’, but that we should work together to create an environment in which your child feels happy safe and secure, enabling them to flourish both emotionally and academically in their own dynamic ways.
I hope this website, together with our prospectus and video tours will give you an insight into our happy school. I am always happy to speak to prospective families about the school and invite you to contact me via the school office or to attend one of our upcoming open events, please contact our school office for more information.
Thank you for your interest in Georgian Gardens, warmest wishes
Miss A Bowers, Headteacher
Here is this week’s newsletter.
The Y5/6 football and netball teams played really well last night in what was most certainly their coldest fixture of the year. The netballers were victorious with a score of 8-2. The football was won by St Margaret's this time but the team played hard against a strong team.
Well done to the Y3/4 football team who came 3rd in a tournament at The Angmering School today. ⚽️ 🥅
Y5 have been creating beautiful sunset scenes along with art straw Greek monuments.
Everyone at GG would like to wish you a peaceful and safe Christmas. We look forward to welcoming everyone back on Tues 4th Jan. 🎄 🎅 🤶
It’s not every day that Father Christmas arrives on a motorcycle! His reindeer are unwell so he had to resort to modern methods. Thankfully, our PTA have a hotline to Lapland.
It’s Christmas lunch day at GG which can only mean one thing…Christmas jumpers!! School feels so festive today!
It has been so special to be able to present our KS1 nativity, ‘Prickly Hay’ to parents. Being outside made it feel more festive and authentic. Very well done to the children who acted and sang - they were all amazing.
Year 4 have been cheering on Mr Alcorn and the rest of the England team. They’ve also been researching the sport of waterpolo and the country of Czech Republic (as that is where the tournament is being held).
