Welcome to our new website and thank you for expressing an interest in Gatehouse School. The website gives you some insight of the friendly, family community that we are, and I do hope you can sense the energy, happiness and enthusiasm that makes Gatehouse such a special place to learn.


As Acting Head, I am proud of our school’s non-selective, inclusive ethos, and I am supported by a dedicated and talented team of staff, who ensure that each child’s natural curiosity about the world is encouraged and expanded.  Our successes are achieved through blending traditional values with modern educational principles.


True to the vision of the school’s founder, Mrs Phyllis Wallbank, all children at Gatehouse School are valued as individuals, and they develop an excellent approach to academic work, achieving high standards throughout the school in their time with us. Our independent personalised approach to learning ensures that all of our children acquire a determination to enjoy every opportunity to learn and to give of their best in all that they do.


As a parent myself, I appreciate how choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you can make on their behalf. You will be entrusting into our care your most treasured possession and we are committed to ensuring that a successful partnership enables your child to achieve in all areas of development.  I warmly welcome you to visit our school, where you will see for yourselves how your child will thrive and achieve at Gatehouse School.


I do hope to have the opportunity to meet you.


Mrs Sevda Korbay

Acting Headmistress
