The Gatwick School has been set up to establish an All-through school for children aged 4 to 16.

All-through state schools are rare but we feel that it is precisely what gives The Gatwick School a unique place in the local provision for schools.

Here are some of the reasons why we think an all-through education is so valuable and why we think it provides an exciting opportunity for our children:

It removes the well-researched performance ‘dip’ at age 11

It removes the learning barriers and age-old fears that many children face as they leave primary school and make the transition to a secondary school

It enables primary aged children to benefit from having some specialist teaching at an early age, which means that gifted and talented children will be challenged and stretched

It enables some children to benefit by having more time to develop their skills

It enables older children to have the opportunity to develop leadership skills by mentoring younger children (which in turn promotes a healthy and positive school climate)

Older And Younger Children Working Together
Since we have been open, it has been special to see so many and varied interactions which have led to very positive relationships being forged between our Primary and Secondary pupils.

House competitions provide opportunities for older pupils to support our younger pupils. Our primary phase sports days are run by teachers and our pupil leaders

Secondary pupils regularly visit Primary classes during special school events and drop down activities. This has inspired our Primary children to demonstrate greater confidence in reading and oral expression
