School profile

Tollgate Primary School

Tollgate is an outstanding school with the highest expectations and aspirations for all our pupils. Tollgate is a happy and exciting learning community that nurtures high attainment and ongoing success for all.

Tollgate is a Teaching School that leads an alliance of 40 schools across 7 London Boroughs. We are a centre of excellence that hosts national and international visitors to share knowledge and best practice. Tollgate is also an Initial Teacher Training Centre that trains 45 teachers a year through our London District East Teaching School Hub.

We aim to reflect the diversity of the community we serve through a strong and powerful community cohesion with high parental involvement across the school. We have established links with sister schools in India, Bangladesh, Bulgaria and Uganda. We also promote an understanding of citizenship and British values through school visits to central London and rural and coastal communities across the UK. Each year our children benefit from residential visits to France and Belgium and more recently to the Netherlands.

We also work with local theatre groups and have a musician in residence.

You are more than welcome to come and visit and look around this exceptional school.
