Joining Tollgate Joining Tollgate

Tollgate School was opened in 1951 and is situated in pleasant grounds with a large playing field and a hard surfaced playground. In 1996 our Nursery Unit opened. Our pupils are drawn from the Mildenhall Road Estate, the Fornham Road and Northgate Avenue Districts, the Barton Hill District and the Fornham villages.

Tollgate Primary School aims to provide an environment where children have the independence, respect and opportunities to make good choices which will increase their learning potential throughout their lives. We aim to develop cohesion and unity within both our local and global communities through support, encouragement, understanding and inclusion.

Going All-Through
This is a time of great change in education nationally. While other schools locally prepare to move to a two-tier system, our schools have already reorganised into the forward looking All-Through system. As a result, all the schools in our Trust are able to focus solely on our core mission of helping every pupil to reach his or her potential by providing a seamless education from 4-19.

Any child in Year 4 who is not already in our system can choose to move into the All-Through Trust. Indeed, parents with children of all ages are very welcome to attend one of our open events and/or to have an individual tour. To find out what you need to do and how to get an application form visit the admissions page.

Pink plated Jurassic WorldPink plated Jurassic World

Our creative pupils designed pink dinosaur themed plates to raise £272 for Asda’s breast cancer charity campaign. The plates were donated to Tickled Pink while Michelle Frost, Asda’s community life champion, supplied tea and buns. The overall winner, Albert Wappett, received a signed copy of book The Dinosaur That Pooped A Planet!

The Bury Free Press reported our success.

On the wild sideOn the wild side

Green-fingered pupils, staff and parents from Tollgate have breathed life back into the school’s wildlife area. Working with the community, we launched the rejuvenation project as the wildlife area had become overgrown and difficult to access. Our school Eco Council and gardening club plan to improve the habitat further with projects such as wild flower planting and making bird feeders.

Head Alison Earl said the outdoor learning environment ‘promotes our vision of an eco-friendly school with a curriculum that encourages discovery’.
