A Supportive Personal Approach
Gateway offers a broad curriculum in a positive stimulating environment. A strong commitment both to academic and creative subjects is balanced with practical and physical activities, ensuring all children will discover their areas of talent, build self-confidence and achieve their potential. Ultimately It is our core belief that education is not just about academic success; it is about building a foundation that gives each child the confidence and skills they need to be the best they can be now and in the future. For one this might be academic studies, for another sport, whilst another might find their forte in music
A friendly flexible school
We work extremely hard to make our children and parents feel secure, comfortable and welcome at all times, operating an ‘open door’ policy where parents and children can talk to staff about anything at any time.
Recognition of every child’s daily achievement is integral to Gateway’s approach. Our intent is to develop each child’s faith in their abilities at an early age. With this solid foundation, Gateway children gain self-confidence and motivation needed to gain good results in national tests and to succeed in future challenges. At Gateway School, all pupils have the opportunity to challenge themselves and to strive to be the best they can be.
Supporting every child
Gateway is a non-selective school that offers children a nurturing educational environment. Our teachers build strong relationships with every child in order to discover and develop their individual abilities. Small class sizes allow staff to devote attention to individual children, differentiating their teaching to ensure high achievement across the ability spectrum.
Going beyond the curriculum
We follow the National Curriculum, while expanding its scope substantially to inspire children and develop their inherent love of learning. By creating links across academic subjects we teach children how to connect and apply knowledge independently.
