Why The Gleddings?

At The Gleddings we recognise and celebrate each child as special. We have the highest possible expectations (academically and socially) of ourselves and our children.

Established for more than 60 years, the school is co-educational with around 200 pupils. The age range is 3-11 years. Parents generally enrol their children before they are born.

We develop self discipline, self respect and confidence within The Gleddings unique “YOU CHOOSE” ethos. We encourage children to “THINK” and to learn how to learn. Our children enjoy coming to school and it is their love of learning that is the main contributor to their many successes.

Our academic results speak for themselves, but we aim to deliver much more. We teach our children to be independent thinkers so that we will create problem solvers and decision makers. More importantly, we teach them to make good choices, not only in terms of achievement but also to ensure their health, safety, well-being and contribution to society, now and in the future. Wherever they go throughout school, children see the reminders “THINK” and “YOU CHOOSE”.
