We have excellent links with local schools.
Our official St Helens Secondary School is Rainford High Technology College
Although children attending Garswood will be guaranteed a place at Rainford High, because we sit on the borders of Wigan borough, some children often move onto a Wigan secondary school. We have strong links with Cansfield High Specialist Language College http://www.cansfield.wigan.sch.uk/ and Byrchall High School http://www.byrchall.wigan.sch.uk/
Pre-Schools and Nurseries
In January 2015 Garswood Primary opened their very own Nursery, providing wrap around care and additional sessions.
However, we do retain strong links with other providers to ensure a smooth transition for children into school. The Reception staff will visit all preschool settings and nurseries beforehand to meet the children and to effectively transfer any information to support the child in settling into school and making progress.
Garswood Primary is part of a very effective network of thirteen Primary Schools known as St Helens First Network. By working together it is a more cost effective way to get the best from resources, including CPD opportunities for our staff. The children also have shared events for instance our more able dancers from each school joined together with a specialist teacher to perform for parents. Children from every school took part.
