At Gad's Hill we firmly believe in the excellence of our teaching, the enthusiastic nature of our students and staff, our friendly, close community and that all our children should achieve success in life. We believe in these qualities and that education is primarily about "learning for life" and that whilst academic success is a priority it is only a part of what makes Gad's so successful.
We also place a strong emphasis on our non-academic curriculum of sports, drama, music and other activities which enable our children to develop their confidence and to learn other skills vital in producing successful, informed, mature and self-reliant young people who depart Gad's for the career or University placement of their choice.
Our school days, according to perceived wisdom, are supposed to be "the happiest days of your life". Here at Gad's it has always been the assumption that children who are happy and enjoy school are much more likely to learn productively and to achieve success. Therefore, it will be no surprise that, one of our priorities is to ensure that all of our pupils are happy and are able to enjoy their education here at Gad's Hill School. Here therefore, you will find small classes, where good manners are valued, picturesque surroundings and above all a positive approach help to produce an environment where your child will be happy, thrive and succeed.
