From Monday 23rd March, schools across the country will be closed to the majority of pupils.

Gonville Academy will be open between 9am and 3pm, to our most vulnerable learners and the children of key workers.

All families of vulnerable learners have been contacted directly and the below letter offers guidance on the definition of keyworkers and the circumstances under which their children should attend school.

Using our in-house catering service, we will provide meals for children on-site and have written to the families of children who are eligible for free school meals to extend our continued support.

Investors in People


Gonville Academy is delighted to have received the Investors in People Award for the third time. This prestigious award demonstrates that Gonville is committed to realising the potential of its staff.

The positive relationships between staff and pupils were highlighted, along with the reward systems in place to ensure that children feel that they are valued.

Teamwork was also highlighted as a strength, with the assessor commenting on our “excellent teamwork and supportive practices including mentoring and coaching.” We are very proud to have received this award, and look forward to continuing to strive for excellence together.
