WELCOME TO GATEWAY COLLEGE

Gateway offers a high quality learning experience using first-class facilities and provides genuine added value.

Enrichment at Gateway College

Enrichment activities are a vital and valuable part of your Programme of Study. We recognise that it is important to give you the opportunity to develop other skills, not just those relating to your academic pathway. We want you to be able to compete in the race for university, apprenticeship places and ensure you are super ready to enter the world of employment.

During the first term of your college course you will be invited to an enrichment fair to sign up for relevant and meaningful enrichment classes that will enhance your programme of study. A full list of what's on will be available from the Schools teams.
