Following their successful Sixth Form scholarship offer in 2020, they are now expanding to include years 9 and 10 in High School as well as continuing the offer to Sixth Form pupils.

The scholarships are available to the sons and daughters of Key Workers who are looking to enter Year 9 in September 2021 and the daughters of Key Workers who are looking to enter Year 10 or Sixth Form in September 2021. Years 10–12 are girls only year groups whereas Years 7, 8 and 9 are all coeducational year groups in September 2021.

Headmistress Dr Tracy Johnson said: “Throughout the two periods of school closures, Gateways remained open to our current pupils whose parents are Key Workers and we have therefore been particularly mindful of everything that this group of society has done for us all recently.

“From our emergency services, food delivery personnel, supermarket front line staff, postal workers and through of course to everyone involved in any way with the NHS to name just a few, Gateways wants to say “thank you”.

“By offering a world-class GCSE and A-Level education to the children of these special individuals, we hope to give something back to this amazing group of people.

“To welcome their children into Gateways would be an enormous privilege for us all.”
