Welcome to Goostrey School

Year 4 had a terrific residential visit to York.  Here are some brief comments (we could have written pages and pages!)

Here are some of the children’s comments:

‘I liked breakfast.’

‘I loved the Castle Museum.’

‘I had a happy time.’

‘York is a fabulous place and I want to go again.’

‘I loved the Minster and the Jorvik Centre.’

‘I liked the bunk beds.’

‘I liked going on the ride at Jorvik.’

‘My favourite place was Jorvik.’

‘I liked watching the film with my friends – we stayed up late!’

‘I liked going in the trains in the Railway Museum.’

‘I liked the organ in the Minster.’

‘I liked the food.’

‘I liked going through the streets in the Castle Museum.’

‘I loved walking through The Shambles.’

‘I enjoyed the brilliant science show at the NRM.’ (‘Especially when they fired Barbie from a canon.’)

‘I liked looking at the original Viking house.’

‘I liked buying things from the Museums’ shops.’

‘I liked it when the Viking pulled his sword out to cut off my head.’ (Oooops – Mrs Cooper…)

The class said the whole trip was AMAZING, MIND-BLOWING, FANTASTIC,

All of the children behaved beautifully and were a pleasure to be with.


Goostrey  Community Primary School is situated in the centre of a thriving village at the heart of rural Cheshire. The size of our school means we can create the individual, caring environment associated with a village school whilst being large enough to offer a full programme of curriculum and extra-curriculum activities. You are very welcome to come and look round our school. To arrange a visit please telephone or email the school and we will be happy to organise this for you.

This is an outstanding school. Excellent leadership ensures that pupils achieve extremely well, attain exceptionally high standards and develop into very positive and concerned young citizens. A comment that aptly sums up parents' views is, 'Goostrey School is a superb place for children to learn in an extremely happy atmosphere.' (OFSTED report 2007).

School Data Dashboard is a useful tool to measure school performance. However, it should be used in conjunction with other comparative data and reports to give a whole school view.

Thank you to all families for their continued support, together we make Goostrey school a very special place to be.
