Gravenhurst Academy

About Us

Welcome and thank you for your interest in our school. We hope that this website will give you an insight into life here. We think that the children here are fantastic. From gardeners to writers, explorers to sports people (sometimes all in the same day!) our children make this school a happy place to be.

We are a values based village school and see this as our foundation stone.  We offer a warm nurturing environment with an emphasis on outdoor learning where children are treated as individuals.

We are part of the Bedfordshire East Schools Trust (BEST), a vibrant learning community, and benefit from both support and services.

Exemplary pastoral care and the support and guidance given to all children are the foundations on which pupils' extremely positive attitudes to learning are developed. Our close partnership with Parents also reinforces this.

Children know how to be healthy, reflecting the school’s Healthy School status and keep themselves safe.

We offer a rich, exciting curriculum, friendly and knowledgeable teachers and a fantastic environment. We believe we can offer your child an excellent education!

“Gravenhurst has a wonderful culture of identifying and responding to the individual personalities and needs of each pupil and their families, and thereby helping them to thrive.  This is not an easy thing to do and something everyone should be extremely proud of.  We will always be grateful for the two and half years the girls have had at Gravenhurst and the grounding, confidence, friendship, opportunities and exceptional teaching they have been given..”
