From September 2022 we will welcome boys into Year 7; by 2026, we will be an all-through co-educational school, from Nursery to Sixth Form.
Providing an exceptional educational experience for children in the Newbury area has always been our focus. In the last decade, we have successfully established Sandleford Nursery and extended the co-educational offering of our Junior School. We are, therefore, both delighted and proud to continue our co-educational offering into the Senior School.
We're back out exploring #AroundTheGrounds at St Gabriel's and we've ventured to the beautiful Oval Room and Library. The Oval Room is one of our favourite rooms at St Gabriel's with its decorative high ceiling and wonderful view of the grounds, it is an idyllic place, with excellent acoustics, for our pupils to learn, rehearse and perform music Moving through the Oval Room, we reach our library, a cosy haven for book lovers to enjoy a thrilling tale, for pupils to catch up on studying, or to do some research Both the Oval Room and the library underwent restoration work in 2019 and are certainly a firm favourite among pupils and staff.

7S started their day with a scavenger hunt for items in their house, based on a colour beginning with the same letter as their first name. As well as giving them a chance to stretch their legs before school, they also practised their photography skills by taking pictures to share with the form What colour would you be? What would you find? #stgabrielsathome #tutortimefun #togetherwearestronger
