Welcome to Gorsefield Primary School
I am very proud to be the Principal of Gorsefield Primary School, working in partnership with Forward as One CE Academy and supported by a highly skilled and dedicated team of teachers and support staff. Gorsefield Primary School is a two-form entry primary school with an integrated nursery and pre-school. Gorsefield is a thriving school situated in the heart of the very community to which it serves.
Gorsefield Primary School cannot only offer the very best standard of education to all of our children but a positive, safe and welcoming learning environment to all. We aspire to fulfill the Gorsefield mission to INSPIRE and CHALLENGE all children and adults to EXCEL in everything they do, now and well-beyond their primary schooling.Learn More

OFSTED INSPECTION, MARCH 2023
- 'Parent empowerment is a key strength, resulting in the removal of the ‘invisible cloak’ that keeps the work of many schools secret. Gorsefield’s work is transparent to all stakeholders. The partnership between home and school has expanded so that now parents regularly come into school to ‘learn alongside’ their children. Feedback is highly positive.'
