About Gateways

Gateways is an alternative education provision that exists to support the countless young people today, between the ages of 14-25, who are or have struggled to remain in mainstream education. Gateways students are referred to us as school refusers, struggle with severe anxiety, debilitating depression, eating disorders, traumas of all kinds and often as a result of serious medical issues.

Over the past 2 years during and post COVID, there has been a 56% rise in enquiries to gateways, as the number of

students suffering are unable to access the mainstream education system.

We believe that every young person should have the same opportunity to progress and thrive, regardless of the challenges they face. Gateways delivers a broad curriculum, academic and vocational, that caters for the interests, abilities and specific needs of the each young person that attends. We aim to prepare them for a life beyond education.
