I am delighted to be part of such a hard working and dedicated team here at Blackpool Gateway Academy. Our aim is to take pupils on an exciting learning journey and give them the ability to create and shape their own achievements and aspirations through inspirational and challenging teaching.

Pupil well-being is at the heart of everything we do. Whatever the needs of your child we aim to ensure they thrive at Gateway, feel safe, have fun and enjoy success. We want pupils’ time in our school to be memorable whilst building upon what they know and can do. Staff and pupils collectively uphold the view that effort equates to success in all that we do and we encourage pupils to take great pride in all of their achievements whether personal or academic.

I hope you find our website useful and informative. Through the site you can learn a little more about our school, staff and curriculum. We currently have 343 pupils on roll and capacity for 26 places in our Nursery provision. We joined the Fylde Coast Academy Trust family of schools in 2016 and this has strengthened our development as we grow every year.

We value highly the partnership between home and school and ask that our parents take an active and supportive role in school life.

We welcome applications for our yearly Reception intake and into our 26 place Nursery, for which there are some places still available.

Visitors are invited to tour our welcoming and friendly school. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Alicia Gibbons, Principal
