School Values


We are an inclusive learning community; rooted in respect, pride, and aspirations.

We are passionate about social justice and the right of all children to an excellent education regardless of their social background, ability, or any other potential barrier that may impede their learning.

Education should be a means to social mobility, eradicating poverty and enabling young people to grow into mature, socially responsible adults who will lead successful and fulfilling lives.

We aim to enable our pupils to achieve exceptional outcomes through Quality First Teaching, supported by our curriculum’s KASE principles and the Gospel Oak distinctiveness programmes.

Our Values 

Respect - We respect ourselves, each other and our environment.

Pride - We take pride in our hard work, community and achievements.

Aspire - We aspire to be the best we can be.

Gospel Oak School is part of the Central Region Schools Trust.  The Trust was originally founded by the RSA.  The vision of the Central Region Schools Trust is to ensure social justice through exceptional schools. A founding principle was that our schools ‘know’ and serve their local community, whilst also recognising that shared knowledge and expertise across our schools makes us all strong in delivering the vision.
