School Ethos/Vision

We believe in the values of community and we hope that our students see Gordano as a place where they belong and are valued and respected. I expect all of our students to live up to those values too in the way that they treat other people and we have high expectations of effort, behaviour and courtesy.

Although we are a large school in numbers, in many ways Gordano feels like a small school where students are known as individuals. In Year 7 students have their own base for break and lunchtimes and are looked after by our Transition team.

Our six Houses are friendly and caring communities of around 220 students each and the House Learning Managers take charge of the welfare, development and progress of the members of the House. Our Sixth Form has impressive new accommodation and a team of specialists headed by an Assistant Headteacher.

We are proud to be a comprehensive school and value every single young person. We have excellent provision for students with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities and for those who are most academically able. At Gordano there is a close partnership with parents to ensure that we respond to every student’s changing needs in education and personal development.
