About gateways

gateways believe that every young person should have the same opportunity to progress and thrive, regardless of the challenges they face. A growing number of young people struggle to function within mainstream education with many believing that there is no other option available to them.

As an educational and vocational alternative provision, gateways offers bespoke education to each student needing another approach to education.

Students attending gateways are ages 14+, they generally struggle to remain in mainstream school, due to poor mental health, critical illnesses and social and emotion challenges, preventing them from accessing the education they deserve.

Delivering a broad curriculum, this unique offering in the UK Jewish community, caters for the interests, abilities and specific needs of each students and prepares them for a life beyond education.

“Every young person deserves an education, no matter the challenges they face”

The opportunities you give to students such as Daniel, are life changing, in a world where they struggle to fit the conventions. Your knowledge of the children, what they need and also what their families need too, is very unique and so special. We are delighted and so grateful that you can see what we see in Daniel...
