  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.

  • Year 1 children ask Beegu questions

    The children have continued to enjoy ‘Beegu’ by Alexis Deacon, he even came to visit us which provided a great opportunity for us to question him! The children were delighted to act as Beegu whilst their friends asked questions. We have looked at instructions and helped an alien get ready for school, writing a set of clear precise instructions using imperative verbs. We explored the River Nile in our Topic lesson and learnt about John Speke and his adventure along the dangerous river. We heard how the Nile was the river that baby Moses was rescued from in R E.

  • Chiltern and South Bucks League Match – 14 November

    This was a crunch fixture against local rivals Great Missenden, as the winner has a very good chance of going on to win the league. Gateway had Ollie B making his debut in midfield and Oscar V-B returning to play in attack. A few positional chances saw Henry G playing upfront and Will SC-B in defence. The game was very open and competitive with Great Missenden controlling and passing the ball better in the opening 10 minutes but with Gateway doing enough to frustrate their attack. Both teams created chances and just after missing a great opportunity Gateway were caught […]

  • Girls Football ISA London North – 13th November

    Gateway took three teams to the London North ISA Girls Football Tournament on Monday and what a day it turned out to be! For many of the Year 4 and Year 5 girls, this was their first competitive fixtures and excitement was high when we left for Barnet. The Year 4 competition was divided up into two pools and after three wins and a draw, the girls topped their group. This ensured a place in the final against Gatehouse. A very closely fought game was played out, during which the girls couldn’t find a way past the opposition goalkeeper. A […]

  • Year 3 enjoy Caribbean themed Topic day


    On Thursday, Year 3 enjoyed a Caribbean themed Topic day. All the children were very excited as they arrived into school wearing bright colours and big smiles! They immediately got crafting, making beautiful Leis, in the style of those worn in the Caribbean during festivals of celebration. Continuing to exercise their artistic skills, Year 3 started to produce some stunning Turtle pictures. The children then enjoyed furthering their fairtrade knowledge by mapping different food and drink products to where they came from in the World. This was followed by a delicious themed Caribbean lunch, enjoyed by the whole school. After […]
