Gillespie is a slightly smaller than average one-form entry primary school, housed in a three-storey Victorian building in North Islington. The school population is diverse, reflecting the wealth of cultures and backgrounds within the local community. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is well above the national average. A very high proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic groups and almost half the pupils speak English as an additional language. The main groups represented are pupils of Bangladeshi origin and those of White British heritage. The number of pupils identified as having special educational needs and/or disabilities is in line with the national average. Gillespie is a member of several partnerships, including the Islington Zone partnership, which provides many opportunities for collaborative work between primary and secondary schools in the locality. The school runs a breakfast club and a wide range of after-school activities.
