We value: honesty, integrity, diligence and learning as a lifelong experience. We believe in ‘stretching’ students in every activity that they undertake and that they perform best when they are educated in an environment in which they feel safe. Our staff care about Gamlingay Village College students and take time to listen to their views. The school has an ethos of personal achievement, responsibility, leadership and mutual respect for all members of our community. We celebrate the many talents and skills that each and every student brings to our school through a variety of rewards and praise.
We recognise that every individual is different and that “every child really does matter.” A good education is each child’s entitlement. We see the need to provide all students with opportunities to develop their individual character and believe that a strong and supportive partnership with parents is crucial to pupils’ happiness and success. This is achieved through regular communication about progress and an excellent pastoral care system.
The academic standards of the school are high and we provide excellent enrichment opportunities in Music, Technology, the Arts and Sports. Cultural, historical and educational visits allow our students to widen their horizons and enrich their lives. High standards of behaviour, uniform and discipline are vital for effective learning and pupil self‐esteem.Pupils are aware of their rights and responsibilities and recognise those of others. Gamlingay Village College has a number of unique factors working in its favour. Perhaps the most important of these is its supportive community in which the school is situated. It is a delightful place to teach and is staffed by dedicated, well qualified professionals who share the ambitions and aspirations of their talented and hardworking students.
We believe in High Expectations, High Aspirations and High Achievement. As part of the Stratton Education Trust we are able to carry out and demonstrate these beliefs with the support of our Trust Partners at Stratton Upper School. Together our Gamlingay Village College youngsters can go through their education from 9‐19 years with a continuity that will aid their learning as students and their development as people.
We would like to invite any prospective parents or pupils to come along and visit us and see our school in action.
SAT Revision; SPAG links for Year 6 pupils
This is the new exam everyone's talking about - ask any Year 6 pupil and they will tell you two things;
1. Yes, it's hard to begin with.
2. But it's easily picked up and as soon as you know the technical names for things it's not as bad as everyone thinks.
We're the first year to do the new Spelling, Punctuation And Grammar test this year and some of us have even been crazy enough to ask for the Level 6 version!
Here are some links to help you practice for the big bits. 10 minutes a day and you'll be an expert this time next month...
