Tollgate Primary School
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.

Academy conversion countdown
Welcome back to what will be a busy and exciting term as we move closer to our date for academy conversion of 1st July. A whole school celebration is planned for this day and we will keep you posted regarding the details! As we begin the second half of the Summer Term, we can reflect on the changes and achievements that we have seen in school over the last few weeks. We are working hard to make rapid improvements and this includes making many positive changes - over the last few weeks you may have already noticed the vibrant, new displays and spaces around the school. Working together and with our partnership with the Academy Trust schools, we are really beginning to see the progress the school is making. This is due to the dedication of the teaching staff who aim to raise standards for all of the children. Anything worth doing though is never easy, and there is still plenty of work for us all to do as we move Tollgate towards being Toll-great!
