It is a criminal offence to apply for or accept a position working with children if you are excluded from such work by virtue of a court order or exclusion by the DBS.

About the schools

Multi-academy trust

The Gosport and Fareham MAT (GFM) is committed to improving education provision and opportunities in Gosport and Fareham. We look after the educational needs of students from ages 6 to 19.


‘It is our moral accountability to all our learners to raise achievement, close gaps, support wellbeing and develop the range of learning capacities through a principled curriculum which is a sum of all the learners’ experiences. These collective experiences will ensure the sustained growth of an effective ‘Learner Voice’ which encourages contributions from the diversity of our learner population and community that has significant impact and influence on our School.’

In the GFM we recognise that it is through our collective endeavour that we can make a difference, with Gosport and Fareham learners’ achievement being greater and them aspiring further. The local commitment to this initiative is overwhelming; schools and communities see this as an opportunity for a group of schools to become greater than the sum of their parts.

We have been relentless in our drive to ensure we are fully staffed with colleagues passionate to understand how to release and enable a young person to engage with and enjoy their learning. We are working hard to ensure all our staff are highly skilled in understanding learners’ needs including the wide range of behaviours and strategies that enable us to maximise outcomes for our young people.

What does this mean in practice?

It means we take our responsibilities to our learners and their parents very seriously, and work together:

To ensure every learner achieves to their very best
So no learner is left behind at any stage
Doing all we can to make sure every learner has quality learning experiences in and beyond the classroom and that we look after their well being
In partnerships to ensure our school community is the best it can be.

How do we measure our success?

By looking at every learner’s achievement and progress:

GCSE results
progress made in every subject across different stages of the year
how our pupil’s achievement compares to others across the country
how well our tutor time supports pupil’s achievement and well being

By looking at the quality of teaching and learning, specifically:

how we are developing pupil’s independent learning
how well we feedback to our pupils so they know how to improve
how good every learning experience is

By looking at how well we use evidence to plan appropriate interventions, use these interventions and then see how successful they are on individuals or groups of learners.

We also look at how we are constantly developing our teachers and support staff in meeting these goals.
