Tollgate Primary Campus

Tollgate Logo

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 are adjusting to their recent move to a two-tier system, our schools are already established and very confident with 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.

Last Day of Summer Term


Ships Ahoy!Ships Ahoy!

Help! Early Years was taken over by a crew of pirates! During the day, the children used their pirate skills to follow the clues and find the hidden treasure. They had the opportunitiy to get creative and make a paper plate parrot, decorate a special pirate biscuit and create a pirate mask. The children all had an argh-mazing day! Thank you to all the parents who put together some superb costumes!

Yellow Team Fly HighYellow Team Fly High

Yellow Team achieved the most merits during the Spring Term so as a reward they went to County Upper to trampoline. The children loved having a go on the trampolines and learnt to make different shapes, how to seat drop and create a simple sequence. The children all demonstrated a growth mindset and kept trying even when they found things difficult. Well done Yellow Team. A big thank you must go to Mr Marshall and the County students who ran this session.

Environment DayEnvironment Day

To celebrate our school value, Caring for the Environment, we had a WOW day. The day was split into three themes; Welcome Wildlife, Water World and Environmental Observers. We were joined by the Horringer Court Annexe and had support from Suffolk Wildlife Trust and Anglia Water. During the day we took part in a range of activities; making bird feeders, cleaning up the playground, natural art, creating a bottle top mural and we had the opportunity to present our own weather forecast using a green screen! Thank you to everyone involved in making the day a huge success!
