School profile

Gunton Primary Academy

We believe that Primary education sets the foundations for a lifetime of learning. Our staff team are committed to creating a secure, caring and positive atmosphere in which children are encouraged to develop to their full potential in a range of experiences and skills. Our children are confident, polite, happy and keen to learn. They are encouraged to be independent and to develop a sense of responsibility. Visitors to the school frequently comment on the welcoming atmosphere, and how well the children conduct themselves. We are proud of our children, and their achievements, and we have high aspirations for their academic attainment and personal growth.

About our school experience

We will also be providing further information about our programme, the Schools we work in partnership with and how to apply.
