Welcome to our Gulf Harbour School learning community. We are delighted you have visited our website in order to learn about our wonderful school.
The first thing I want you to know, is that I am very passionate about this school and no doubt you want to know what sets this school apart from others. Even though schools teach from the same curriculum documents, each school has a different flavour and a way of doing things. What stands out about Gulf Harbour School firstly, are our fabulous students and then our dedicated staff who are continually focusing on providing quality education. We want the best for your child and have high expectations of them, just as I do of our staff. We have a strong sense of urgency, knowing every moment needs to be valued as a teaching moment.
At Gulf Harbour School we encourage everyone within our school community to have high expectations of themselves and each other, whilst working hard to achieve positive results in all areas of learning. Literacy and Numeracy skills development are a key focus for learning at Gulf Harbour School. We enjoy working in all curriculum areas to engage our learners in a diverse range of activities and endeavour to provide a happy, challenging and creative learning environment to develop each child's social, emotional, physical and academic skills.
We are fortunate to have a supportive Board of Trustees who are also focused on the goals we set, ensuring that a large amount of funding is given to employ a specialist sports leader and additional support staff as part of our team.
