We are all very proud of the pupils who have been chosen by their peers and teachers to be members of our School Council, Eco Committee and Africa Committee for this new academic year. Parents were invited to the Key Stage assemblies this week to share this special moment- watching their children presented with badges.
Pupil voice work is very important to us at Gorse Hall; the Council and Committees have achieved so much to date. We are very much look forward to the exciting projects planned.
We wish the children well in their roles.

We hope that you’ve had a happy and relaxing summer. We’re really looking forward to welcoming back our fabulous pupils on Wednesday 6th September. We’re also looking forward to meeting our fantastic, new Nursery and Reception children again too. School pupils will be met in the school playground at 8:50am (in class spots) by their teachers and brought into school for registration to commence at 8:55am. Nursery starts at 8:50am for those starting on Weds 6th Sept and at the same time for those starting on Mon 11th Sept; staff will meet and welcome children, parents/ carers into the nursery at this time.
Information about uniform is in our school brochure (link on front page of website). Please contact the office and/ or your child’s teacher (via the school office) should you have any queries. We are always happy to help.
We’re looking forward to an exciting year- by working together the possibilities are endless!

I hope that everybody is having a great summer so far.
Our local MP and great friend to Gorse Hall: Jonathan Reynolds MP has posted a lovely message on his Facebook page praising the Gorse Hall children for their contribution to the local community.

Well done everybody.

We have two class winners of the Always trophy to end the term and the school year- RKW and 2JC. Every pupil in both classes have followed the always expectations each day. Mrs Wrench, Mrs Jones, Mrs Cunliffe and Mrs Gregson are especially proud.
This is a brilliant achievement- well done to all.
The year group of 2017 put on a fabulous leavers’ assembly on Thurs 27th July for parents, carers, family members and the whole school. They shared memories of their time at GH. A video was put together and watched. This reflects their friendships and the fun they have shared together. They were all presented with an engraved pen and a framed class fingerprint tree as gifts from school. In the evening they enjoyed their prom at Stalybridge Labour Club. We wish they all well in their new adventures at high school.
Remember you are all talented and unique… follow your dreams and work hard!
This morning was simply fabulous! Parents, carers, pupils and staff joined together in the hall to celebrate the achievements of the children who have collected 250 star points during this academic year. Pupils from Reception to Year 6 were awarded with a certificate and a trophy for their excellent efforts this year. Points are awarded on a daily basis for excellent work, behaviour, attitude, friendship, teamwork, being a good role model and rising to challenges. It was delightful to present these awards to all of the deserved winners. There is a display in the school entrance which has photos of all of our winners on it.
Stamford are our winning house this term with a total of 945 star cubes. Second place goes to Astley with a total of 648; third place to Cheetham with a total of 593; and fourth place to Tame with a total of 503. These totals are amazing and a great indication of the good behaviour, excellent effort and great teamwork that exists in our school.
Well done to all!
