  Welcome to Gateway

Situated in the heart of the Chiltern hills in the beautiful village of Great Missenden (home of Roald Dahl), Gateway School is a co-educational, independent day school for children aged two to eleven. Its core belief is 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.  At Gateway School, all pupils have the opportunity to challenge themselves and to strive to be the best they can be.

  • Reception enjoy a trip to Mead Open Farm

    What a jam packed week we have had in Reception and all finished off with a trip to Mead Open Farm. The sun shone, the children smiled and the rain clouds stayed away until we got on the coach to come home! We had a fantastic day out, where the children enjoyed petting the rabbits, feeding the goats and giving the lambs a bottle of milk. The children were very well behaved and were rewarded with a fun time in the adventure playground. Here we saw lots of taking turns, helping hands, cooperation and excellent manners as well as laughter […]

    The U11 girls played in the ISA London North netball tournament last week. The tournament is the qualifier for the National finals which makes it very competitive. The girls got off to an excellent start by winning their first three matches. Mr Judge was impressed with their movement and passing. With only one loss they came top of their group and went on to the quarter finals. It was a tough match and unfortunately we lost to Avon school. A great day of netball for the girls with some outstanding movement and shooting. Well done.

  • Under 11 Football Gateway vs Holmer Green – Wednesday 15 March

    In this match, Holmer Green were looking for revenge after Gateway beat them narrowly in the cup, earlier this year. Sam W made his debut, as a defender, rewarded for all his hard work at club and recent improvement. Gateway proved solid in defence and moved the ball well in attack, creating several good chances. Will St C-B scored another of his scorching shots from just outside the HG goal area after 12 minutes. Further chances made for an exciting end to the first half; with one goalmouth scramble seeing five shots, from close range, being blocked by the HG […]
