As a voluntary aided school the Christian environment is enhanced by visits to St Mary’s Church, Gillingham, St Michael’s Church, Geldeston and Stockton St Michael’s.
We cater for children of 4 to 11 years of age. This covers reception through to Year 6. We have good links with Gillingham Pre School and are pleased to offer many shared learning experiences with their children throughout the year.
Children will usually transfer to Hobart High School in Norfolk, in the September following the child’s eleventh birthday. Close liaison will be maintained with the High School, particularly with regard to the Curriculum and every effort is made to ensure that the children feel confident when they leave us to begin their next school. The children have the opportunity to visit the High School before transfer and also the Year Head and Special Educational Needs teacher visit our school to meet staff and pupils.If you wish to contact Hobart High School their telephone number is 01508 520359 (Headteacher Mr Griffen). www.hobart.norfolk.sch.uk/HHS/
