Gateway College was opened in 1928 as a boys’ grammar/technical school and became a Sixth Form College in 1976 as part of the reorganisation of secondary education in the City of Leicester. Today the College is a mixed open access college hosting 1,200 full time students, mostly aged 16-19, and with an annual turnover of £6.5 million.

In April 2020, Gateway Sixth Form College converted to a 16-19 Academy and joined the Better Futures Multi-Academy Trust (BFMAT) which is sponsored by Coventry University.
