Welcome to Gust Independent School

A Child Centred Community of Growth

Karen Gibb


Head of School's Welcome

I am very proud to be the Head of School at GUST Independent School. We are an Independent Special School for children aged 6–17 with a variety of additional needs that may otherwise not be met within a mainstream setting. We provide both Primary and Secondary education in a warm and welcoming environment where all learners are supported to re-engage with education and strive to reach their full potential.
At GUST, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is tailored to the individual needs of each of our learners. Our highly skilled staff work together with learners to enable everyone to experience success; from our youngest Primary pupils to our Year 12's who are preparing for adulthood.

We place great emphasis on the development of exceptional behaviour and attitude, including a consistently high level of respect for others and a commitment to their education. All staff and learners live the ‘Who D.A.R.E.S Wins’ values in order to achieve success in all aspects of school life.
