We are delighted that Tollgate Community Junior School joined DCAT on 1st October 2023.  

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 October 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 ‘open door’ 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.

Year 6 Colour Run

We raised an amazing £617.90 for CLDF

Dee explains why it’s always worth asking your child’s school to get involved in Big Yellow Fridaysmiley

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 of CLDF has been invaluable to us all as a family.

I suggested a Wear Yellow Day as it’s really easy to organise and all the pupils donated to join in with that.

I am really touched to get so much support from children and staff who know Tiffany. It just shows the response you can get when a school understands that something is directly affecting one of their own families.

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 if they only do a Wear Yellow Day it can bring in a lot of money.

    Air Ambulance
    Good afternoon Air Ambulance competition We’ve had a very exciting invite, along with other schools from Sussex, Kent and Surrey, to help name the new Air Ambulance helicopter! Each class is putting forward a name to be entered into the competition. If one of our entries is chosen our school name will also be emblazoned on the new helicopter. The school will then receive a fly over from the helicopter and we will be visited by a paramedic from the Air Ambulance team with their mascot Skye. We will be holding a Mufti day on the last day of term Friday 24th May to raise money for the Air Ambulance – if we raise over £100 they will put Tollgate’s name on the new helicopter. Please send children in with a voluntary contribution to help us raise money for the Air Ambulance. Thank you, School Council
