Welcome to Gosfield School

Thank you for visiting the current Gosfield School website. With a new website following soon, the information included here will provide you with an outline of the exceptional Independent educational experience that we provide to families throughout Chelmsford, Colchester, South Cambridgeshire and the towns and villages in between.

Huge estate, small classes and personalised pathways

Our 110 acre estate comprises mature parkland, excellent pitches and award-winning woodlands. The Senior School and Sixth Form inhabit an elegant Georgian manor, while the Prep School and Nursery benefit from purpose-built contemporary architecture. Both embrace a wide range of academic subjects delivered through personalised pathways to class groups of no more than 20. We expect every individual to reach and grow beyond their academic predictions from the point they join us.

Self-confidence, collaboration and problem solving

Academic rigour is accompanied by an equally strong focus on personal characteristics. Pupils benefit from our own Forest School, deep commitment to Duke of Edinburgh awards, extraordinary expeditions and the value of public speaking and debating. Each develops self-confidence, resilience and problem solving skills that will be essential in tomorrow’s workplace. We expect every individual to become engaging, innovative and collaborative contributors to the future.

Trust and respect, making memories in a family atmosphere

Comprising around 250 pupils aged between two and 18 years, our school really is like an extended family. Most pupils and staff know everyone’s name. Pupils, teachers and support staff share lunch in the same dining hall. Friendships transcend all ages and families become lifelong friends too. We expect every individual to recognise the important role of trust, respect and kindness within happy and fulfilling lives.

With a comprehensive mini bus provision serving towns and villages across the region, Gosfield School provides a unique opportunity for pupils of all academic abilities to enjoy the freedoms, experiences and rewards provided by an Independent education. Visit us soon to experience the difference.
