Gillas Lane Primary Academy and Nursery

Proud to be part of the Aim High Academy Trust


As we prepare to bid farewell to our Year 6 Leavers, they have been presented with a leavers hoody to wear with pride in their last few weeks here at Gillas Lane. They look very smart in them and I'm sure it's something they will treasure.

Y6 Taster Day at Kepier - Thursday 5th October

Our Y6 children will be spending the day at Kepier on Thursday 6th October.
Children need to arrive at school at the normal time and we will then walk them down to Kepier - they will be back at Gillas Lane for normal home time.
Lunch will be provided for all children so there is no need for a packed lunch this day.
Kepier have asked that all children wear their PE kits for this day so trainers can be worn!

If your child is in Year 6, you have until October 31st to apply for a secondary school place for them.

Lambton Estate

Thanks to the Sir Tom Cowie Charitable Trust, ten of our Year 6 children have been able to spend the day at the Lambton Estate learning all about the different jobs that are on offer. We are always looking to raise aspirations here at Gillas Lane and encourage the children to 'aim high'. We may have some future bee-keepers and estate managers on our hands!
