Grestone Academy






Head of School's Welcome

We’d like to extend a warm welcome to the website of Grestone Academy! By taking the time to look around the school website, we hope you’ll begin to get a small flavour of who we are and what we are about.

We are very proud of our school community and the way the whole team works together for all the children. Children are at the heart of all we do and we want them to enjoy a rich and exciting education at Grestone so that they leave here well prepared for secondary school. Our children are individuals with many individual talents and need high quality teaching and learning as well as a rich and diverse curriculum to excite and motivate.

In the last couple of years, the school has been on a journey to ensure the children’s experiences match with the vision we have for a vibrant and lively school community where core subjects, a rich curriculum and wider school experiences produce happy, confident and independent learners. Following our most recent OFSTED inspection in February 2020, we are really pleased to be able to share the progress we are making, particularly with the behaviours, attitudes and personal development of our children. OFSTED have rated us as GOOD in these areas and we are highly focused in ensuring that this positive momentum continues to increase.

As we continue to strive for progress, we understand parents, carers and visitors to our school play a vital part in this journey and understand that a healthy partnership is vital for the success of our children. Please don’t hesitate to contact the office on 0121 675 6787 to make an appointment to speak to a member of the staff team. We look forward to welcoming you in person!
