In order for children to succeed and thrive at secondary school it is vital that they leave us confident in accessing the secondary curriculum in all ways. The Greville aims to inspire and nurture its students to achieve in many different ways. We have acknowledged strengths in music, sport and performance. A very significant proportion of the children take part in choir, orchestra or are learning an instrument. Our Ofsted report from October 2019 states “There is a strong sense of community across the school, with staff and parents working together as part of the ‘The Greville family’ for the benefit of all pupils.” We are proud of the welcome we give to new children and their families each September – it is always a joy to see how quickly the children become members of the Greville family.
We have a broad and varied enrichment curriculum on offer at the Greville. The rich variety of experiences and opportunities, the teaching ethos where the children’s voice is truly heard and the subsequent atmosphere the above creates is something we strive to nurture and encourage.
Outside visitors talk warmly of the children’s openness, confidence and happiness.
Our children achieve significantly above national average attainment on leaving and we constantly strive to improve the progress they make between joining and leaving the school.
We have impressive resources and facilities. The all-weather pitch provided by our hard working PTA is loved by the children and is a very valuable teaching resource. Our hall has retractable tiered seating which allows parents to enjoy seeing shows and concerts in comfort. We are lucky to have a large playing field and three playgrounds. All classrooms have state of the art interactive screens which bring learning alive. Children enjoy using the wide range of computing equipment in the school. Our infant and junior libraries are classroom size and full of a range of books to stimulate young minds.
Children’s safety and wellbeing is paramount to us.
Please take time to see our Year 6 children take you on a virtual tour of the school – we hope you enjoy it. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you require more information about the school.
