Be the best you can be!
Welcome to Gayton Junior School.
We are proud to welcome you to Gayton Junior School, where children are encouraged to be the best that they can be – both academically and personally. We work hard to create, review and adapt our school environment to be sure it is safe, fun, inspirational and caring. We are committed to safeguarding and we pride ourselves in the care that we offer to both our children and their families while they are with us.
Our exciting curriculum, delivered by our highly trained staff, places an emphasis on both knowledge and skills for learning, enabling our children to become equipped with skills for life-long learning that they will continue to use as they progress through school and into the diverse and ever-changing world beyond. Through our Passport Scheme, children take part in fundamental enrichment activities – things we believe all children should experience.
This year, the governors and staff of Gayton and our main feeder school, Ridgeway Infants, are keen to forge better links between the two schools, working more closely together and ensuring the smoothest possible transition for the children at the end of Year 2. This collaborative partnership will enable both schools to ensure that early skills taught at Ridgeway are built on at Gayton, allowing children to make the best possible progress across the curriculum.

Please read through our website to find out more about us, or download our prospectus here. Then, if you have any questions or would like to visit to see us in action, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
Mrs J Hill (Headteacher)

During the day we shared “5 Top Tips” for keeping children aged 7-11 safe online via the school’s Twitter account (@GaytonJunior). The top tips can be found below:
