Information about the school

Gad’s Hill School operates as three distinct departments within one school. The Kindergarten takes children from age three into the Nursery through to Year 2. Pupils follow the National Curriculum although there is a strong emphasis on play, physical education, music and drama with all pupils performing in a number of short productions each year. The school places particular emphasis on communications and therefore pupils from Reception upwards receive twice weekly lessons in Spanish and also ICT.

The Junior School is currently growing in size and became two-form entry throughout Years 3-6 in Autumn 2019. Our Junior pupils receive a high proportion of lessons with subject specialists; in particular Modern Languages (Spanish), DT, ICT, Art, Music, Science & Games. By Years 5 and 6 a great number of lessons are delivered by specialist tutors. There is a particular emphasis upon team games and almost all of our students have the opportunity to represent the school in fixtures against other schools.

The Senior school has a two-form entry. The curriculum is relatively broad, with all pupils taking a spread of subjects including Art, DT, Food & Nutrition, Spanish, Computer Science, Music and Drama. Students choose a range of options at the conclusion of Year 8. They follow a core of Maths, English (Literature & Language), Combined Science and CCF (BTEC – Teamwork & Personal Development). As options they may choose from History, Geography, Spanish, Art, Food & Nutrition, DT, Computer Science, Music, Drama and PE. Our GCSE curriculum is broad, suits most pupils and provides a firm foundation for sixth form and university entry.

At present there is no sixth form education at Gad’s and pupils currently depart to a variety of onward destinations. The majority will study at local grammar schools, but others attend other state or independent sixth forms or colleges. In the last two year we have partnered with the University for the Creative Arts and several of our leavers have commenced Extended Diploma courses with them.

The school operates a good number of after school activities and would welcome new additions to the extra-curricular programme.

The Headmaster, Mr Paul Savage, was appointed in August 2018, having previously occupied the role of Head of Seniors. His vision is to provide generations of pupils with all the opportunities and individual care and guidance that an independent school can provide but underpinned by a passionate commitment to the evaluation and refinement of quality teaching and learning, based on the latest educational research.
