Mrs D. Day

Hello, I’m Mrs Day.  I have been at Guston since September 2006, initially as Deputy but then as Headteacher from April, 2008 and have enjoyed every minute!  I am very passionate about our school and all that we do.  I value the contributions and commitment of all the children, staff, parents and governors together we make a unique Guston family.  We run an ‘open door’ policy, so if you have questions, issues, concerns (or even compliments!), please feel free to pop in and see me.

I run Homework Club alongside Mrs Kemp and am the facilitator of School Council, which is a great opportunity to model democracy to our students. I am also Science and Technology co-ordinator.
