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 as 'open door' policy, so if you have questions, issues, conerns (or even compliments!), please feel free to pop in and see me.
