Welcome from Admissions
Set on the edge of Victoria Park in the East of London, Gatehouse is a non-selective Preparatory School. Our Nursery welcomes children from 3 years old and most of our pupils stay with us at Gatehouse until they move on to a wide range of both leading Independent, Grammar and State schools.
