Here’s what Ofsted had to say from our most recent inspection (April 2019) at Gelston Manor

  • The highly ambitious managers lead a strong, loyal and dedicated team of staff
  • Children are happy as they freely explore and investigate in this highly enabling environment. They are supported to become inquisitive, confident learners
  • Babies and toddlers enjoy an abundance of sensory experiences
  • Children of all ages are wonderfully inquisitive as they develop a sense of the world around them
  • Children have wonderful opportunities to learn about the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle
  • Children have ample opportunities for fresh air and exercise as they access the well-resourced outdoor area on a daily basis, regardless of the weather
  • Children thrive in this wholly inclusive environment


In April 2018 Gelston enrolled onto the “Curiosity Approach” accreditation. This 12 month programme will fully embed the Curiosity Approach into our provision.
