Gateways School are the ranked #1 in the UK for Value Added in GCSE in Science, Maths, Computer Science, Latin and PE.
Headmistress, Dr Tracy Johnson commented,
In what has been a very difficult year for everyone, it has been a pleasure to guide this hard working group of students through to realise these successful outcomes. They carried on working hard throughout lockdown and this enabled their teachers to evidence progress made since early mock exams taken last November and to submit appropriate Centre Assessed Grades for them. Their hard work also allowed courses to be properly finished and this will have prepared them much better for their next level of study than if they had simply stopped working. The results achieved today are as a result of a collective effort between the pupils, their teachers and their parents – a partnership that we pride ourselves on at Gateways just as much as we do our small class sizes.
