What the school says...

Gateways School is set in an attractive rural location in Harewood village between Leeds and Harrogate. Gateways consistently achieves excellent academic results - GCSE and A level results continue to rise year on year - while encouraging students to make the most of the state-of-the art facilities and wde range of extra-curricular activities on offer. Small class sizes allow pupils to develop intellectually through high quality teaching from dedicated staff. Research has found that girls are far more likely to thrive, attain higher academic results and stay longer in education if they attend a girls-only school. Six Scholarships are available - Academic, Music, Performing Arts, Sports, Exhibition and Foundation - which are awarded through interview and examination or interview and assessment depending on the scholarship applied for. For more details on scholarships and bursaries contact the Registrar. ...Read more
