What says..

For practising Catholics St Greg’s is the obvious local choice, but others said it was the ‘very caring together feeling’ that won them over. One parent explained that their decision was based on ‘the happiness factor that is so evident at St Greg’s. Plain and simple, the kids are genuinely happy and self-motivated in what I can only call a close "family" community.’ The school is very excited to have its first author in residence. Josephine Corcoran, a poet, playwright and short story writer, is here once a week running workshops and drop-in sessions to chat through ideas...

Thank the school

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since 2016, Ann Cusack, previously deputy head at St Augustine's Catholic College in Trowbridge, and before that assistant head at Sacred Heart in Camberwell, London. Originally from Ireland, Ann grew up in Cheltenham, studying history at North London Polytechnic (now part of London Metropolitan University) and later a PGCE at University of East Anglia. She has been teaching since 1990 and now lives in Frome with her husband and three children.

Parents told us, ‘She's making her mark with innovation and she is a force to be reckoned with!’ One added, ‘I think the head has found her feet extremely well and the school has done remarkably to maintain its happy core.’ She has made a number of changes and the general consensus is that these have been positive; ‘the future...

Special Education Needs

It is recognised that all pupils have needs which are special to them; the curriculum provided is broad, balanced, relevant, differentiated, challenging and stimulating thus raising the standards achieved by all. Pupils who are particularly talented or gifted are identified early and staff are encouraged to match how and what they teach to the needs of the pupil. Using National Curriculum SATs, NFER CATS and other sources of information received, including from the junior schools, the Learning Support Manager identifies those who may need extra help. The nature of their needs is assessed and direction is given on how best to meet these needs. Support, resources and in school training are made available to staff in order to ensure that all pupils are given equal access to the curriculum. Text books, materials and other resources are carefully selected by all Curriculum leaders to be suitable and stimulating. Pupils are taught in mixed ability groups for some subjects and setted for particular subjects. Consideration is made for those with special educational needs; the numbers of pupils in some classes will reflect their need for more individual guidance. Additional in-class support will be available in some lessons. The post of Learning Support Manager (formerly SENCo), is a non-teaching colleague who therefore has more time to devote to meeting parents, annual reviews and 1:1 work with children. She works closely with all faculties to ensure that pupils receive the attention they require. For all National Curriculum subjects the syllabus on offer is common for all pupils, regardless of ability. The pace of work, sophistication of skills taught and the level of the content covered will reflect the pace at which the pupils can work. Teachers' expectations remain extremely high; pupils are encouraged to set for themselves realistic goals and to make every effort to achieve these as they mature and become more independent.
