Gatehouse Primary School

Gatehouse is a large primary school for children aged 4 to 11. We work hard to ensure that all of our children are provided with a good education.

Parents tell us that we are a calm, relaxed, hard working and welcoming school. They feel we provide all children with a safe, secure and warm environment for learning. Our whole school staff is dedicated and hard working and we are very well supported by an active School Association and Governing body.

The school can take up to 60 children in each year group, currently organised in two parallel classes of 30 or less. Each year parents of children who are due to start school for the first time apply to the Local Authority for a place at the school, the closing date for the next round of applications is January 25th 2008.

Choosing your child’s school is a big decision and can be quite daunting. We regularly show parents around the school during the day to give them a better understanding of how the school works. If you would like to arrange a visit please contact the office. This headteacher will show you around the school, including the Foundation class, the first class your child will enter. This will enable you to see our children working, have time to discuss any questions you may have and give you all the information you need in deciding if this is the school for you.


We recognise and value every child’s strengths and aim to develop their physical, social and creative abilities along with their academic skills. The curriculum is rich and varied with many opportunities to extend learning through educational visits, clubs and residential experiences. We work closely with children and their families to try and make their time spent at Gatehouse challenging, memorable and most importantly, fun. Our aim is to provide all children with an opportunity to go on a residential before they leave our school. Each year we try to provide a different type of residential. The last two residentials were an adventure experience on the Isle of Wight and a cultural experience to France. The last visit was open to all children in Key Stage two (8-11 years old) and parents were able to pay for the visit in instalments during the year.


Each term our staff and volunteers from the community offer a range of clubs for children to attend. We try to cover a range of clubs each term. Previous clubs have included Photography, Wildlife club, Mosaic, Netball, Football, French, Dance, ICT, Japanese etc. We regularly organise educational visits throughout the year to enhance the learning in class. Recent trips have been to the Eden Project, Exeter Cathedral and Synagogue, and Bath. Residentials are arranged annually and vary each year. This year pupils went to the France taking part in a variety of outdoor education challenges and learning about French life.
