Beyond Gatehouse School………..

Dear Parent

At Gatehouse, one of our roles is to prepare your child for their next school.  You will possibly already have some ideas and options and undoubtedly, you will want to find a school that is the perfect match for your child.  There are, of course, a number of considerations when choosing your child’s next school; state or fee-paying, day or boarding, single-gender or co-educational, entry requirements of your preferred school/s, academic performance, pastoral support, co-curricular opportunities, to name a few, and so, to help you with your choice, we have compiled this booklet which I hope you will find useful.

The information within is intended to give you a brief outline of some local independent schools.  I would, however, urge you to visit your preferred choices of schools, either by attending their Open Days, Information Days or by booking a private tour.  Visiting schools and seeing them ‘in action’ will give you a good first impression which is vital, for both you and your child, in assessing whether your son/daughter and a school would be a good match.
