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.

Choir perform at The ApexChoir perform at The Apex

Choir performed in the Trust's concert 'Songs from Stage and Screen'. They performed 'Naughty' from Maltilda the Musical and 'Do-Re-Mi' from The Sound of Music. They also performed with the other Trust choirs to open and close the concert. The children all worked incredibly hard to learn all the words. Their performance was superb and their enthusiasm and joy came across to everyone watching. We have received some fantastic comments from members of the audience. Well done Choir!

World Book Day 2018World Book Day 2018

On the last day of the Spring Term, we held our World Book Day celebration. The children and staff all dressed up as book characters - the costumes were amazing! The day provided a wonderful opportunity for the children to share their favourite stories in class. Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who joined us during the day to share stories with us. 

Year 2 become Kings and QueensYear 2 become Kings and Queens

The Year 2 topic has been Kings and Queens. They have learnt about Queen Elizabeth II; who she is, where she lives and her family. The children worked with Mr Morris to draw some fantastic portraits of her. The classes read 'The Queen's Knickers' before writing their own versions. The topic culminated in a dress up day - there were some wonderful costumes. It was great to see so many parents come in and complete activities as part of this day.
