Do you have a child ready for Year 3 in September? Are you considering an independent education for your child? If so, we invite you to find out about the close-knit and welcoming family that is Gateway School.
Situated in the heart of the Chiltern Hills, Gateway School is a non-selective co-educational, independent school in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, for children aged two to eleven years.
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. At Gateway School, all pupils have the opportunity to challenge themselves and to strive to be the best they can be.
Successful Year 3 entry programme
We have a well-established programme for children who join the school in Year 3, ensuring a smooth transition into life at Gateway. A visit is organised during July for all new children where they will spend a day with their cohort and class teacher. This enables them to begin to develop new friendships, familiarise themselves with the school environment and meet the staff who will be responsible for their care and learning. In addition, we have an outward bound trip in September which encourages the children to develop valuable skills in teamwork and trust.
Key Stage 2 pupils enjoy a broad curriculum where core subjects are taught by their class teachers who are supported by specialists for sport, music, art and languages. We are proud of the academic success of our pupils who all leave us well prepared to meet the challenges of secondary school education in both the independent and state sectors.
