Green Island School Y6 Camp 2017 630Our well-resourced school is built for the sun and is surrounded by attractive, spacious grounds which the children enjoy full use of.

Green Island School has an experienced, caring and enthusiastic teaching staff, a supportive Board of Trustees and an involved community, who all actively contribute to our brilliant school.

Green Island School focuses on continuity of education right through your child’s journey; especially supporting the transition to school in New Entrants and the Year 7 and 8 transition into secondary school. We recognise the unique opportunities and challenges for students and families during these transition times and have crafted purpose designed programmes to support growth, strength and caring through challenge and change.
