Thank you! - posted 13th Nov

Gateacre School were extremely pleased to be part of the Lateral Flow pilot taking part in 12 secondary schools across Liverpool, in conjunction with the British Army.

All at Gateacre School would like to thank the British Army for their help, support and dedication to this Liverpool initiative. Similarly, we would like to thank the British Army for the part they played during our Remembrance Day commemorations on Wednesday. This certainly became a more poignant, emotional event as a result of their participation.

Gateacre in the press - posted 12th Nov

Although most days in school at the moment wouldn't be classed as normal, we had a particularly interesting day this week when the local and national media descended on us to get our opinions on the mass testing programme and the new Lateral Flow tests, that can give results in less than 20 minutes.

Students, parents and Mr. Jones our Head Teacher were interviewed for a number of different channels including, BBC, ITV, Channel 4, BBC Radio Merseyside and the Liverpool Echo. It was great to be able to debunk some myths around the testing process with students stating although it is uncomfortable for a few seconds it's definitely not as bad as you think it will be.

Home-Learning - posted 14th Sep

‘Homework’ has been proven to be an important aspect of learning and one we felt we need to improve on.  

In light of this, we have revisited our Homework policy and, after researching practices that are proven to work, we have devised a better way of setting tasks for our students. We need your support to help it be a success.
