Independent preparatory schools do not have to follow the National Curriculum or submit test results to the Department for Education so there is no individual school performance data or star rating.

Visit the school's website to learn more about their unique curriculum, policies on testing and common leaver destinations (a good indicator of pupil progress). See our About page for information on Choosing A Prep School.

School Description

Situated in the heart of the Chiltern hills in the beautiful village of Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire, Gateway School is a co-educational, independent day school for children aged two to eleven. Its core belief is that education is not just about academic success; it is about building a foundation that gives each child the confidence and skills they need to be the best they can be now and in the future. For one this might be academic studies, for another sport, whilst another might find their forte in music. At Gateway School, all pupils have the opportunity to challenge themselves and to strive to be the best they can be.

“Nurturing academic exc”

I have been lucky enough to have both my children through Gateway and we couldn't be happier. The school shines through its nurturing and stimulating environment and children are individually valued, guided and encouraged to achieve their potential. The level of teacher is of very high-quality along with the learning experiences provided across the curriculum. Gateway has a wonderful welcoming atmosphere which creates a sense of belonging amongst the families. Parents are made to feel equally valued in and around the school. I feel very grateful that my children have had such a brilliant start in their educational journey.
“Amazing to see how our son has developed”

Really good place for a child to start learning and be prepared for the "big" school! The pre-school is really well structured with great management and staff, with varied and quality activities where children constantly learn through play! It is amazing to see how our son has developed since he has joined the pre-school. We definitely recommend!
