Monday 5th June is an Inset Day so we welcome the children back on Tuesday 6th June 2023 for term 6. Have a great half term!


We are delighted that the DfE have approved our application to join DCAT. The academy order has been signed that will enable us to take the next steps. We hope to convert to academy status as early in the coming academic year as possible.

A warm welcome from the Headteacher

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. You want your child to be safe and happy at school. You want their learning to be meaningful and enjoyable. We are delighted that we are in the process of joining the Diocese of Chichester Academy Trust. This is an exciting opportunity that will enable Tollgate to collaborate with other schools with a similar ethos. We are confident that approval will be given by the Regional Commissioner in Spring 2023, with conversion completed for September 2023.

Our children are excited about coming to school. They feel part of our learning community. Everyone is valued, respected and cared for. We are committed to meeting the individual needs of each child. We work in close partnership with all of our families. This ensures our children are successful and responsible members of the community. Vital to this partnership is our โ€˜open doorโ€™ policy. Parents and carers feel they can approach the school if they have a query or concern.

At Tollgate Community Junior School we celebrate success, reward achievement and support difficulties. Our pupils are keen and motivated learners. They have a well-developed understanding of the world and their role within it. Our curriculum is broad, balanced and enriching. We make the most of first-hand learning opportunities.

We hope that this website gives you a flavour of what life is like at Tollgate. We would like to welcome you to our school to experience for yourself the unique ethos and opportunities that our children enjoy. We hope that your family will become part our learning community and take advantage of all that we have to offer.

Welcome to our school.

Mr S. Dennis

Together Everyone Achieves More

We are all born with an innate capacity to learn. How successful we are can depend on a variety of factors. These can include how we feel about ourselves, if we know how we learn best, how good we are at practising and making links with what we already know. At Tollgate we know that we have children with a tremendous amount of potential. With help from parents we aim to develop this potential.  

If you would like your child to join us at Tollgate, we would love to hear from you. Or you can contact the East Sussex County Council Admissions team for more information.

    Brighton and Hove Football Club
    Good morning, Following on from the PING sent regarding the Brighton and Hove football club next term, there was a confusion about the start date. Apologies, the first Monday back is an Inset day, therefore Brighton and Hove Football were amending the dates to start the following week (12.6.23), and were reimbursing anyone that had paid for that session. Thank you for your understanding. Kind regards

    ๐Ÿ’›'Big Yellow Friday'๐Ÿ’›
    Dear Parents/Carers On Friday 26th May we will be holding a Yellow mufti day. For a donation (please give generously) your child can wear yellow clothing to raise money for a charity very close to the hearts of one of our families. Please read 'Dee's story' below: Dee's Story When your child has a liver disease it affects the whole family. My youngest child Tiffany, who is now eight, received a liver transplant when she was a baby. Thankfully she is now doing really well but the support from CLDF has been invaluable to us all as a family. I have asked Tollgate if they would like to get involved in Big Yellow Friday and they were delighted to! I know that we can all be a bit reluctant to approach schools about fundraising because they do get loads of requests from bigger charities. However when there is a personal connection it is a bit different and even with a 'Wear Yellow Day' it can bring in a lot of money. I was really touched to get so much support from children and staff (from her siblings previous school) who didnโ€™t even know Tiffany. It just shows the response you can get when a school understands that something is directly affecting one of their own families. Thank you so much for your support and generosity ๐Ÿ’› Dee Kind regards Mrs Willgrass
