The College has around 1,650 students on roll each year. Most students are currently preparing for the GCE AS and Advanced Level or BTEC/OCR vocational programmes, GCSE or Foundation Learning subjects in their chosen subjects, progressing to university, other Gateway programmes or employment. At Gateway College we aim to develop the potential of every one of our students.
Gateway College attaches great importance to helping individual students achieve maximum value added, and they consistently achieve grades above those which might reasonably be expected based on GCSE scores. This is the result of a positive, constructive staff-student-parent partnership, and allows genuine progression.
