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.

Year six and Macbeth!

Year six children have just finished a chunk of literacy work on Shakespeare and Macbeth, and enjoyed a finale set of workshops with Frances Entwistle from the David Ross Academy of Acting. The children discussed the details of plot and characters with Frances, as well as taking part in some fun drama activities and practices, including freeze framing, re-enactment and a sword fighting workshop. Children had great fun and showed their enjoyment of the play and it’s subtle plot lines! GCSE English, here they come!
