Welcome to Gayton Junior School

At Gayton, we believe that we offer all our children a safe and secure environment in which they can learn and reach their potential. Our staff are very well trained to deliver an exciting curriculum that will spark a love of learning that will last a lifetime. We pride ourselves in the care and support that we offer to both our children and their families while they are with us. By working together to achieve academic, social and personal goals our children receive an education that supports the development of the whole child and not just their academic achievement. We value parents, families and the community as vital partners in helping us provide the best education possible.

In September 2020, we federated with Ridgeway Infant School, as the Blagreaves Federation. Both schools are maintaining the links created between the two schools, working more closely together and ensuring the smoothest possible transition for the children at the end of Year 2. This 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. At present, due to COVID restrictions, we are unable to welcome you to school to see us in action, however, we have recorded a short tour of the school which you can view by clicking here. If you still have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Mrs J Hill (Headteacher)
