Gorse Covert is the easternmost of the districts which form the town of Birchwood in Warrington. It is also the most easterly part of the Warrington urban area (though not of Warrington borough). It was formerly site 6 of the Royal Ordnance Factory at Risley. It is now a large, suburban residential area with a mixture of good quality housing. It has a pub, (The Poacher), a primary school (Gorse Covert Primary School) and a local shop (One Stop). Gorse covert also has woodland areas and walks with views from Pestfurlong Hill, part of the Woodland Trust. We are fortunate to have Risley Moss Nature Reserve on our doorstep too!
We pride ourselves on supporting our community in the best way we can; fundraising, taking part in and organising local events and visiting our local area.
We also support our local community through the use of our community wing which is available for local groups such as Scouts, Mums and Tots etc.
If you wish to hire one of our community rooms, please contact Mrs Wilkes in the school office. There is a large community room (with kitchen) and a meeting room available during the day and evening. You may also wish to hire the school hall for larger groups during the evenings.
If you are experiencing problems at home, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Cooke who can put you in touch with additional support.
We have an after-school link club and breakfast club attached to the school run by Wasps. For further information, follow the link.
