  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.

  • U11 South Bucks Cup – Thursday 12 October 2017

    Having played and drawn against Holmer Green in the ESFA Cup recently, the team had to face the same opposition in this local cup tie. Holmer Green started strongly, creating a series of good chances only to be foiled by some resilient defending and a bit of good fortune. Against the run of play, Gateway struck quickly with a flowing move down the right wing and when the ball was pulled back to the edge of the box, Will SC-B hit the ball so sweetly in rocketed into the roof of the opposition’s goal. Within a minute, Gateway were 2 […]

  • ISA Junior Triathlon – 6 October 2017

    Six boys and four girls travelled across to Hutton Manor Woodlands School on the 6 October for the ISA Junior Triathlon. A relatively small triathlon compared to the National one held in Lucton, but a good introduction for some of our pupils that haven’t competed in a triathlon before. The girls were up first tearing round the course and some of them finishing before the boys were even out of the pool. The boys had an equally fast pace and strong finishes. A great day out for our young triathletes and more to come in the future. The girls were […]

  • Mrs La Farge’s blog

    Dear Parents It’s hard to believe we are already at half term! Although I think both children and staff are ready for a short break to recharge their batteries. We are so proud of all the children who have settled really well into their new classes and have already thrown themselves into their learning and school life this academic year. Many older pupils have already proudly represented Gateway at some sporting event or another, nearly all year groups have been out on a school trip, we have enjoyed our first Walk to School Week and our first Music Tea of […]
