Tollgate Primary School

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 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.

Tollgate Induction ProgramTollgate Induction Program

Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfill their potential. A child’s experience in the Early Years has a major impact of their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood helps to provide the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up. Our data shows that when children take their full allocation of five sessions a week from the term after they turn three then those children achieve the best results at the end of the Foundation Stage and are better placed to start Year 1.

At Tollgate Nursery we run two sessions, the morning session for our oldest pupils and the afternoon session for our youngest pupils. There is an option for your child to enjoy their packed lunch with their friends at an additional cost with the Tollgate Picnic Club. (Please ask for a leaflet if you are interested).

Making ChristmasMaking Christmas

What ingredients are needed to make Christmas? The children in key stage one and reception shared the Christmas recipe. Reception became Father Christmas's elves, marching presents, rocking robins and swirling snowflakes. The children in Year One became the characters of the nativity story. Year 2, were the cooks, ensuring the recipe was read and all the ingredients were stirred into the pot including the most vital ingredient of all - Baby Jesus! From lively songs such as 'We want some robins' through to the beautiful sounds of 'A gift called Love', the children made sure we all knew that the Christmas Recipe wasn't one you eat but one you 'feel in your heart'. Well done to all the children! Thank you to Parents and staff for making costumes.
