Message from the principal Welcome to The Gower School

Welcome to The Gower School, which I founded in 2000.

It was wonderful for the school’s work to be rated as Outstanding and Excellent in every category following our most recent external inspection. We offer a broad curriculum in multi-age classrooms which aims to develop the whole person – their mind, body, heart and soul. We teach academic, social and other valuable skills to last a lifetime. Our goal is to make sure that our girls and boys are confident, happy all-rounders with a love of learning.

“The most Islington place imaginable with strong adherence to Montessori principles, eg: ‘heuristic play’ sessions, high staff-to-pupil ratio, with devoted key workers.”

“Behaviour is exemplary. Staff prepare children to respect and care for one another. Children are happy, safe and secure within their nurturing environment. Children build very secure and loving relationships with key people and all staff in their room.”
