GILLOTTS is a high performing school committed to innovation and development.

Students make good progress and achieve high academic standards as a consequence of the commitment and professionalism of school staff and of the quality of the overall school experience.

The school, based in Gillotts Lane, Henley celebrates achievement in the widest sense and sees everyone as an individual, capable of growth, change and development.

Gillotts staff communicate the joy of learning, fostering creativity, a spirit of enquiry and an independence of mind. Students and staff form a happy and caring community which takes pride in personal excellence.

Working in partnership with parents, the school supports young people to become lifelong learners as well as happy, effective and responsible citizens, equipped with the skills for life and work. The school are proud of the success they achieve together and strive to reach new heights.

Ofsted inspected Gillotts in June 2012 and recognised that it remains a good school in every respect. Standards continue to rise due to ongoing improvements in the quality of teaching and leadership. Ofsted commented: “The school’s motto, ‘non nobis solum’ (‘not by ourselves alone’), lives strongly in students’ good behaviour, their commitment to one another and eagerness to achieve highly together.”

These findings have been backed up by the 2013 GCSE results, which were the school’s best. One third of grades were A* or A and 72 per cent of students achieved the benchmark of five or more grades A* to C, including English and maths.

Catharine Darnton, Gillotts’ headteacher, said: “We have comparatively small numbers of students in each of our six houses so that we can get to know our students really well, and provide them with the support they need to make good progress.”

Gillotts is a popular school but vacancies do arise when families move out of the area. Contact the school to find out more or to arrange a visit.
