School profile

Gosford Hill School

We are a comprehensive secondary school who are part of the River Learning Trust. Our values of responsible, respectful and resilient encompass everything that we stand for as a school. We pride ourselves on the emphasis that we place on the needs, aspirations and achievement of individual students, with learning very much at the heart of our work. We want our students to develop as resilient and independent learners, keen to overcome challenges, and take risks, so that they gain the skills needed to enable them to lead fulfilling lives as confident and articulate individuals in our society.

About our school experience

We offer an opportunity to observe a variety of lessons and therefore a variety of teaching styles throughout the day. Candidates can also observe lessons outside their subject if they wish, we just need to know before the day so we can plan to accommodate this. Candidates will also have an opportunity to interact with a wide range of students and staff, including ECTs, so they can learn more about the teacher training process.
