Year 6 Transition to the GFM

Welcome to the GFM


We are delighted to be welcoming your child to the Gosport and Fareham Multi-Academy Trust (GFM). We look forward to working with you and your child and supporting you as we prepare for the transition from Primary to Secondary education where we want every pupil to be able to achieve their full potential.


The GFM are group of local schools (Bay House School and Sixth Form, Brune Park Community School, Gomer Junior School, Rowner Junior School and LWS Academy) that work together to champion the needs of Gosport and Fareham learners across all phases of education – Secondary, Primary and SEN. The GFM recognises the need to work in partnership with Hampshire County Council and all local schools to build better outcomes and opportunities for the young people of Gosport and Fareham. It is through our collective endeavour that we can make a difference, with Gosport and Fareham learners’ achievement being greater and aspiring them further. The local commitment to this initiative is overwhelming – schools and communities see this as an opportunity for a group of schools to become greater than the sum of their parts.
