Gillas Lane Primary Academy and Nursery

Proud to be part of the Aim High Academy Trust



I am delighted to introduce myself as the Headteacher here at Gillas Lane. Working together with the children, parents and families of the local community, I am certain we can achieve great things. High expectations will be the theme that runs throughout Gillas Lane - your children deserve the very best and to have high expectations of them pays them a compliment.

We will work together to foster a culture where collaborative learning and high achievement is expected and celebrated with children being given the opportunity to shine in a whole host of ways.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your child starting our school, please either call in or ring up to make an appointment.

Mrs Monaghan.
