Welcome to our website and to our new school year.
I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as the new Acting Head of School here at Gateway Academy and feel excited about the future in our wonderful school.  I’m very lucky as I know most of our parents and of course am very familiar with all our children in school.

From my experience of being an Assistant Principal for several years, I know that a successful and happy school depends on all of us working together.

Gateway Academy has grown in a very positive way and as Mrs. Gibbons moves on to pastures new, I know we can build on her successful time at our school and strive to be the very best we can be. We need to do this together and I am looking forward to driving standards even higher in this new chapter and will need your support as the whole school community.

Parents make an important contribution to children’s achievements at school, and I want to further develop the relationship between the school and parents for everyone’s benefit. Our school community continues to grow with the appointment of a number of teachers, some very experienced and some in the early stages of their career. We also have some additional support staff joining our team and I look forward to the year ahead with this amazing team of dedicated and caring staff who have the needs of your children at heart at all times.

We will be holding a number of events over the next term, including meet and greet sessions, informal meetings such as coffee mornings and more opportunities to see and support the children’s work in school through assemblies, which will provide an opportunity to talk to you and discuss the building of an even more successful partnership. These meetings will take place at different times, which I hope will enable most families to attend. If you have any ideas for further parental engagement that you would like to suggest or develop here at Gateway Academy please make an appointment and we can talk about this. You’re also welcome to contact me by email at admin@gateway.fcat.org.uk or phone on 01253 402936.

I look forward to a very happy and successful journey over the next year at Gateway Academy.
