John O'Gaunt Hungerford
Set in rolling downland on the edge of Hungerford, John O’Gaunt is a mixed 11-16 school, with an attached Sixth Form, serving the Kennet and Lambourn Valley area of West Berkshire . The fine setting amidst extensive playing fields gives an ideal environment for serious study .
John O’Gaunt aims to promote standards of excellence. Each student is recognised as an individual and encouraged to develop academically, physically and spiritually his or her own potential. This is supported by a strong pastoral and guidance programme led by tutors, Heads of Hall and Lead Academic Tutors.
Whilst we emphasise academic achievement, good conduct and hard work, the school is a friendly and supportive community. A strong departmental structure ensures continuity and progression. Students build on their experiences in core and foundation subjects and enjoy exciting cross-curricular experiences in many areas ranging from the modern world of information technology to the creativite and expressive arts.
Expectations and aspirations are high, with key foci on high levels of attendance, very good levels of behaviour, supported by a broad curriculum, accessible to all. The school is currently embarking on a large refurbishment plan to provide the students with excellent facilities in which to work to supplement the many already outstanding resources that have been available for a number of years. Amongst these are science laboratories, technology areas, sports hall, information technology suite and an all weather Astroturf pitch, which provide for the pupils and the local community.
