Our Parents Say

I’ve been so impressed with Goffs-Churchgate. My daughter is in Year 7 and is really enjoying her time so far, plus she has come on leaps and bounds academically from when she first started. She really enjoys coming to school, which in turn makes us very happy. It’s a fabulous school; well done to all the staff for making this school what it is today.

I am extremely happy with the school. My daughter is doing so well and has achieved a lot in five months. I can say that the discipline procedure is fair and affective and keeps my daughter on track. I would definitely recommend the school to future Year 7.
