Gooseacre Primary Academy is located in Thurnscoe in South Yorkshire, close to Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham. We currently have over 280 pupils on our roll and ten classes in the school: Foundation Stage 1 and 2, three Key Stage 1 classes and five Key Stage 2 classes.
The school has seen a remarkable pace of improvement in recent times and in June 2014 Ofsted judged us to be “a good school”. We are proud to have achieved this status for a second time, which is due to considerable dedication and effort from the whole team of staff and wider academy community. We are committed to maintaining our rate of progress. We will build on our strengths, ensuring good practice is embedded into the school and drive forward new initiatives to enhance our performance further.
We are delighted to now be a part of the Astrea Academy Trust. The Astrea vision enables individual academies to flourish with real autonomy, whilst also ensuring a strong ethos of support and collaboration.
