Colin Tapscott headteacherOn 1st August 2013 Gusford became an Academy as part of the Active Learning Trust. This partnership will enable us to bring even higher quality at Gusford alongside maintaining the things we value, such as our relationship with parents and carers. This website is part of that relationship as this site is intended to support parents and carers with their child's learning and general school information.


If you want to discover more about Gusford Primary School a great place to start is the News on the Ninth celebration newsletter pages (click this link to see them).


Gusford is a school that is improving in its SATs results year on year, but more importantly it is a school that offers a great breadth of education (see News on the Ninth again!) and supports parents to help their child (parents page). We have spaces in some yeargroups so if you would like your child to join us then please contact my PA, Lynne De'ath, to arrange an appointment to view the school and meet us.


If there is anything on this site you have enjoyed or if you have further questions then we would love to hear from you. Click this link to email us.
