Gateway Senior Years are about encouraging an enduring love of learning, and offering children increasing levels of independence and responsibility so that each one leaves Gateway feeling prepared academically and socially for their next school, and knowing they have achieved their best.
Preparing for secondary school
Teaching methods and personal timetables in Senior years are specifically designed to anticipate the academic demands children will face in secondary school. Seniors enjoy a curriculum delivered entirely by specialist teachers and make rapid academic progress to achieve good results in national tests.
All Gateway children are well prepared for the secondary education they have chosen, be that to local state schools, 11+ entry to local grammar schools, or common entrance and scholarship papers for independent senior schools.
