Ethos & Values

College ButtonE SafetyIntercollege College ChallengeMeet the TeamStudent LeadershipThe Gateway Academy focuses not only on academic excellence but also on developing creative, confident, value-driven individuals who add to our community and who will be our role models of the future.

We look to educate the holistic person. To achieve this, the Academy provides a vast array of activities and opportunities outside of the main curriculum that develop self-worth, resilience, confidence, creativity and curiosity. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of every opportunity the Academy offers, even when this places the student outside of their comfort zone.

We believe that education is not only about acquiring knowledge and skills but about developing a spirit of intellectual enquiry in a caring, stimulating and enjoyable environment. Our aim is to not just provide the highest quality of education but to develop skills, characteristics and traits needed to be successful in life after education.

Our values are driven through all that we do, our Academy promotes an environment in which we demand the following:

  • A sense of fairness
  • Integrity
  • Tolerance
  • Respect for others and for the environment
  • A sense of togetherness, characterised by shared values and an enthusiasm for learning
