Tollgate Primary Campus

Tollgate School is situated in pleasant, spacious grounds. Our pupils are drawn from the immediately surrounding areas of town, but also from the Barton Hill district and the Fornham villages.

Our 2017 Ofsted graded Tollgate as ‘Good’ and where “pupils enjoy going to school” and “feel happy and well looked after.” Parents reported to Ofsted that they “are delighted about the work of the school” and Ofsted found that “Teaching is effective and good practice is shared across the school.”

Ofsted were also clear about the value of Tollgate being in the All-Through Trust. They said “through the Bury St Edmunds All-Through Trust, leaders ensure that the curriculum is exciting, rich and balanced” and “[the Trust] is invaluable as it increases leaders’ capacity to sustain improvement”.

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.

Outdoor Learning DayOutdoor Learning Day

We took part in National Outdoor Classroom Day. Some classes took their everyday learning outside, whilst others did forest school activities. We had a maths lesson about co-ordinates in the playground, potion making in the forest school area and map making on the field. We all had a fantastic day and enjoyed getting outside. Thank you Mrs Quittenton for arranging it.

Year 4 Physics AfternoonYear 4 Physics Afternoon

Year 4 enjoyed an afternoon of physics led by the County Upper STEM Ambassadors. There were 8 activities and the children had a chance to complete each one. The children were really engaged and enthusiastic about the opportunities. The STEM Ambassadors were fantastic. It was a great afternoon of collaboration between two phases of the All-Through Trust.

Fire! Fire!Fire! Fire!

This term, Year Two have been learning about The Great Fire of London. As part of their topic, the local fire brigade came into school and talked to the children about their job. The children learnt about the uniform and the fire engine. Teachers had to race against one another to put on all the uniform. The children all got to use the hose and try to squirt footballs off the cones. Thank you for coming!
