Welcome to Gurnard Primary School situated in the vibrant village of Gurnard on the beautiful north coast of the Isle of Wight, just a short walk from the beach and a short drive from the capital town of Newport.

We are a happy and caring school with excellent relationships between pupils, staff, parents and governors; it is a real privilege to be the Headteacher of this wonderful school. 

At Gurnard, children always come first and we are lucky to have a truly dedicated staff team that work hard to ensure the best possible outcomes for all of our children. 

We are constantly searching for new and innovative ways to make learning exciting so that everyone at Gurnard enjoys the sense of adventure that learning brings.  We have designed a curriculum that enables our pupils to explore new opportunities, meet experts and discover their passions. This exciting approach to learning alongside our excellent teaching has been recognised through consistently high academic results as well as national gold standard awards in science, the arts and sport.


Although we recognise that academic success is important, we also believe that for education to be successful, it has to be about preparing children for life.  We believe that our children should develop an understanding of the wider world, their place within it and how they can make a positive difference.  Our core values of determination, aspiration, friendship, responsibility and respect really matter to us.  We encourage our pupils to work hard, knowing that facing challenges and making mistakes are all just part of the journey. 


Our staff team is committed to making a real difference to the children in our care.  Everything that we do as a school is to ensure that our children enjoy coming to school and are supported to be successful in all areas of school life.  We are committed to working together with families to support children's learning and wellbeing.  We are built on strong values; our pupils show tremendous care and respect for one another and we are very proud of their excellent behaviour.


I do hope that our website gives you a feel for the learning that happens daily at Gurnard Primary School.  You are warmly invited to visit us to find out more.
