Gosbecks Primary School

Be The Best You Can Be

Our Year 6 children made us very proud when they set about tidying up the war memorial site on Shrub End Road in preparation for Armistice Day. You can see the photos of them at work on the 6C class page. Also below you can see the staff hard at work on the cycle challenge for Children in Need if you scroll down this page.
