  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.

  • New routines for Reception children

    What a busy and fun filled first week Reception have had! Learning the daily routines have been our main focus this week. We have been practising how to get changed independently for PE, clear our tables at lunch and sorting out our belongings at the start and end of each day. As well as the daily routines we have also been getting used to the timetable and meeting other members of staff during our specialist lessons such as Art, French and Music. The children have been amazing and have really taken it all in their stride! We are looking forward […]

  • Year 5 settle into their new-style routine – and learn German

    Year 5 MFL 15_09_17

    The Year 5s have had a lot on their plate with the start of the new school year. As well as new planners, uniform and lockers to get used to, they have had to move around the school each day to find each of their different subject lessons. ‘Where are we going next?’ has probably been one the most common questions amongst them since starting back. However, among such an enthusiastic bunch, there’s always someone on the ball to head them in the right direction. In MFL lessons, Mr Lloyd is introducing the Year 5s to the German language this […]

  • Year 4 explore tropical rainforests

    Year 4

    This week, the children have enjoyed thinking about what they would like to find out about the rainforest. After sharing some of their current knowledge, the pupils discussed areas of interest and shared them with the class. Many of the children would like to find out about the types of plants and animals that live in this incredible habitat which lead to lots of questions about dangerous creatures such as the poison dart frogs! The pupils would also like to find out about the size of the Amazon rainforest and look into issues such as deforestation and pollution. We hope […]
