Welcome to the page of the Great Ouse Primary Academy Parent Teacher Association, or GOPA PTA.

We are a group of mums, dads and carers who have got together to raise money for our children at Great Ouse Primary Academy. We are a separate body to the school but we work alongside staff. Throughout the year, we will stage regular fundraising events that are fun for our kids and will support the school by providing teaching equipment, reading books, financial help with school trips or playground equipment.

We would love for as many parents as possible to get involved. Come along to an open PTA meeting once a term and get involved with our events and share your skills with whatever time you have available. If you'd like to help, have ideas you'd like to share or any suggestions for the PTA, please get in touch by emailing We'd love to hear from you!

Welcome to Great Ouse Primary Academy

Welcome and thank you for your interest in our school. Great Ouse Primary Academy is a school that thinks and dreams big for its pupils. Expectations are high for all who make up the Great Ouse Primary Academy community and these standards reflect the wonderful physical environment we have developed to enable children to flourish within and beyond the school walls. We are committed to developing learners who are resilient, learners who are focused and learners who are aspirational in their goals; learners well prepared to be successful citizens of the 21st century.

Great Ouse Primary Academy opened as a brand new primary academy in September 2017 and is a proud member of Sharnbrook Academy Federation (SAF). The school is a named feeder school for Lincroft Academy and Sharnbrook Academy. The school is a bright, modern and inspiring learning environment with up-to-date technology and vibrant teaching and learning spaces for our pupils and staff.

We believe that the school absolutely belongs to our community of children, staff, parents and carers. We urge you to actively support and be involved in the school. It is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to be part of something special.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
(Martin Luther King, Jr)
