Why High School?

The intellectual freedom enjoyed by the girls in our High School is something worth protecting fiercely. They make choices they wouldn't otherwise make and they end up following pathways they might not have the confidence to choose within a coeducational environment.

How To Apply

Welcome to High School

Welcome to Gateways High School where we provide an academically stimulating and challenging, yet supportive environment in which students can develop into mature and confident young women. In addition to academic study, pupils are given the opportunity to engage in a wide range of extra-curricular pursuits including sport, music, drama and involvement in community outreach and fundraising activities. We warmly invite you to step through our Gates and have a look for yourself as to whether Gateways might be the right fit for your daughter.

A Day in the life of ...

Taliya in High School


This morning was our class assembly. We decided to focus on friendship as this means a lot to us in the class. We spoke about the qualities that we find in a good friend such as someone who is always there for you. We all wrote the assembly together


History is my first lesson of the day. It is one of my favourite subjects because Mr Crosby explains it in a way that is fun and easy to understand. At the moment we are studying the Peasant's Revolt against the king after the Black Death. We watched cartoons to help us understand.


After lessons we rush to the dining room for some snacks - sometimes there are slices of pizza which are my favourite! Today we sit outside and have a chat before the next lesson because the sun is out.


In Spanish today we are in the language lab. We can call each other across the room to practise our conversations. I also like learning by testing myself on the iPad.


Today is fish and chip day which is everyone's favourite day! I need to eat a good lunch because I have rounders club straight after. Mrs Braithwaite teaches it and it's really fun - we get to try lots of different techniques and then practice them in a game. We also get to mix with other year groups.


This afternoon I have PE which is my favourite subject. Recently we have been doing athletics. I have been really enjoying the sprinting. Today we learnt how to improve our sprinting techniques by using sprint starts. After this I get changed for my final lesson before home time at 4pm.
