Gateacre School is an integrated and inclusive school where the care and support of our students is paramount.

The welfare and academic progress of students is supervised on a daily basis by their Academic Tutors. After consultation with their primary school teachers, students are assigned to tutor groups for the purposes of academic support, pastoral care and guidance. They usually remain in the same Academic Tutor Group and with the same Academic Tutor for all their years at Gateacre.

We welcome parent/carers involvement in supporting and encouraging their children. It is recognised that parent/carers can make a positive difference to a child’s progress and achievement and we cannot emphasise enough the importance of strong home-school links and how much we value parental engagement.
