About JOG

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to John O’Gaunt School.  We are a successful, dynamic and friendly community school. 

We are very pleased to have a reputation as a school with a family feel and pride ourselves on the individual support, advice and guidance that all our students benefit from.  However, whilst our smaller than average size offers the benefits of knowing each other well, it does not prevent us having big ambition and offering great opportunities for all our young people.

We have high aspirations for all students at John O’Gaunt.  They are supported through highly effective and committed specialist teachers and support staff.  We are dedicated to offering challenging and engaging lessons that students enjoy being part of and where they make great progress.  In short, we believe in all our learners and want to inspire and support them to achieve their very best.

Alongside strong teaching, learning and academic success, we believe that school is also about nurturing confident young people who are resilient, tolerant of others, proud of their own achievements, and determined to be the best they can be. Therefore, we also ensure that our students have opportunities to develop crucial personal and life skills, both through the formal curriculum and the enrichment opportunities that we are able to offer.

We are very proud to be a school at the heart of the local Hungerford community.  We firmly believe that by working together with this community, and our parents and carers, we can help create a generation of happy, confident and successful people, who make a positive contribution to our society.

I hope you enjoy looking through this website and that it will give you a flavour of the opportunities we offer at John O’Gaunt School.  We would also welcome the opportunity to show you our school, so that you can truly appreciate the quality of education your child will experience.
