Thank you for visiting our school website.

The children, staff, governors and myself are all very proud of our school and we strive to ensure that Greengate is a happy, caring environment where everyone works hard and achieves to their best potential. Our aim is to give children the skills to become life long learners so that they can become the good citizens of the future. Here at Greengate we believe in offering children opportunities to develop individual skills and so we offer a creative curriculum and plenty of opportunities for children to develop their skills both during school and after school. From the moment your child enters the school they will become part of the school community.

At Greengate we are in a strong position to succeed in all aspects of education. We are a well resourced school; we have excellent premises and small class sizes.The school has an open door policy so that you can come and discuss anything you need to. The whole team is very dedicated and by working with you, the parent, we can build a team that will help your child.We are all extremely proud of our achievements no matter how big or small. We understand that if you are deciding on the next four years of your child’s education then you are making a very big decision. Therefore, please visit us and see what we do.

Netball tournament May 2014!

Our girls netball team gave a stunning performance in this year’s inter schools tournament. Their sportsmanship was outstanding and they held two of the best teams in town to drawn matches. The girls didn’t make it to the final but it’s fair to say that the matches they did play in were very exciting…well done girls!
