Welcome from Head of School

John O'Gaunt is a wonderful school where every student is challenged to achieve, and even exceed what they thought was possible.

As a ‘smaller than average’ secondary school we pride ourselves on the individual support, advice and guidance which all our students receive. Every child, whilst part of our school community, is treated as an individual and encouraged to reach their full potential.

Whilst academic success is vitally important for all our students to help enhance their life chances in the future, we believe that school is also about nurturing confident young learners who are resilient, tolerant of others, proud of their own achievements, and determined to be the best they possibly can be. Our dedicated teaching and support staff work tirelessly to help make this happen.

We are very proud of the close relationships we have with the local Hungerford community and we believe that by working successfully with parents and carers, together we can help create a generation of happy, confident and successful people.

If you would like to come and have a look at what we do, we would be delighted to welcome you and show you around.
