Welcome from the Head of Upper Primary

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the school community at the British College of Gava. It is wonderful to be leading the Upper Primary school at this exciting time of growth and development. The expansion of our school site, coupled with the strength of our fantastic team of teachers, puts us in pole position for ensuring your children are ready and prepared to forge their own successful way through school life and beyond.

We believe that young children learn best when they are stimulated, motivated and hooked into learning in their preferred way. Sufficient and appropriate challenge, together with a curriculum designed to inspire, accelerate and encourage active learning will ensure your child is ready for the ever-changing, fast paced world in which we live. We highly value the whole child and strive for our pupils to be emotionally intelligent and emotionally strong. Active encouragement of our pupils to be inquisitive about the world around them lies at the very heart of learning at BCG.

My aim is to ensure our curriculum is rich and rigorous, and designed with our community and pupils in mind. I firmly believe that community cohesion lies at the heart of any successful school. We greatly value the views of the school community and throughout the year provide opportunities for both children and parents to contribute their ideas. The Parent Forum is now firmly established and I encourage you to become involved as much as you can.

At the British College of Gava, we excel in nurturing children who leave us bold, resilient and unique. A solid education, in an unrivalled setting - where we celebrate every child’s success - form the bedrock of a future that is brighter beyond imagination.

I look forward to meeting you and your families.
