Celebrating Excellent Effort at GVC
2016.10.14: Letter from the Headteacher
Dear Parents & Carers
Visit from the Chairman of the County Council
We were pleased to host Sebastian Kindersley for a visit to the school this week. As many will know, Mr Kindersley is the District and County Councillor for Gamlingay as well as being the current Chair of the County Council. Mr Kindersley undertook a number of visits to lessons to see the children at work. He even took an active role in a question and answer session with Year 6 pupils, who were studying democracy and the rule of law.
I took the opportunity to outline to Mr Kindersley our excellent achievements as a school and our Head Students conducted a formal interview with him which will be written up and will go out with next week’s letter. I am grateful to Mr Kindersley for sparing his time to come and visit us and the visit was a very positive experience for the school. Our pupils were as ever, independent, enthusiastic and focused on achieving great things in their learning.

Proposals Regarding the Future of Education Provision within Gamlingay
Today, pupils from Gamlingay Village College each received a letter and booklet to give to their parents/ carers regarding the future of education provision in Gamlingay. To GVC parents, we apologise if this article has reached you before the hardcopy.
We appreciate that there has been a considerable amount of uncertainty in Gamlingay regarding education provision. Ultimately, providing the best possible education, experience and opportunities for our pupils and the children of Gamlingay is our priority.
Digital copies of the documents are available for download below.
The first Mini Club of the new school year will be on Friday 7th October
