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.

If you would like any of the information on this web site in printed form please contact us. We make no charge for this.

Field of DreamsField of Dreams

The Reception and Nursery children all visited The Field of Dreams on Thursday 29th June. The children enjoyed their coach ride to the farm and wanted their lunch soon after our arrival! After a tour of the farm, we set to work on our activities. The children had the opportunity to feed the animals, collect the chicken and duck eggs, hold the baby rabbits, plant some seeds and pick some wild flowers! Highlights of the day included Mrs Bailey getting the pig to sit on command (it had been trained!) and the chicken stealing Mrs Wappett's sandwich! The farm volunteers were impressed by the children's manners and excellent behaviour. Well done!

Summer FayreSummer Fayre

Thank you to everyone who supported our Summer Fayre - it was a great success! There was a good variety of stalls on offer, from hook a duck to biscuit decoration. Face painting proved as popular as ever. Thank you for all your donations of teddy bears and items for the rainbow tombola. The highlight had to be Sponge the Teacher. Well done to all the staff who took part.

Bury in Bloom Art WorkshopBury in Bloom Art Workshop

Representatives from each class took part in an Art Workshop to help celebrate Bury in Bloom. The children drew their design onto a fabric square, painted it using Brusho dyes, before adding on buttons and ribbons. They listened carefully to the instructions and all immersed themselves in the activity. We were delighted with the end product; they will be displayed around the town as part of the Bury in Bloom celebration.
