Chasing Horizons

Gipsy Hill

Preparing young people for a life without limits.

At Gipsy Hill Federation we hope that all of our children will leave us and go on to have happy and fulfilled lives. The outstanding education our children receive will enable them to compete academically. But we also realise that outstanding academic achievement is not the only element required to lead happy and fulfilled lives. Our children need to have the skills to adapt to an ever changing global society. Resilience, self-confidence, good character, health and sustained wellbeing are equally important.

We at Gipsy Hill Federation are aware that young people’s lives can be stressful and filled with challenges now, during their journey into adulthood and throughout their lives. Our aim is to equip our young people with the skills and tools necessary to be productive citizens and be successful in whatever field they choose, enabling them to find ways to cope with the challenges that life will inevitably throw their way.

We do not subscribe to the belief that education is just one long recruitment drive. But we do accept that it is our responsibility to prepare our young people for the world of work. We do this by raising their awareness of the wide range of professions and different jobs at an early age. This enables them to imagine themselves in a full range of roles thus not limiting their horizons too early or too quickly.

Our aim is to build a culture of aspiration and ambition for pupils from all backgrounds. We also seek to develop creative, independent lifelong learners who will be equipped with the tools that will enable them to make considered choices throughout their lives. We achieve this by offering and exposing them to a world of possibilities and experiences.

2002 Craig Tunstall became Head of Kingswood
