Saturday School

It's Saturday school, but certainly not as I knew it. In my day, Saturday resembled weekdays with yet more compulsory lessons in the usual subjects, delivered by uninspired, authoritarian spinsters, followed all afternoon by matches against other schools for anyone silly enough to have shown any aptitude.

The Gateway Academy project, however, looks pretty much like many Home Education gatherings, with the provision of a wide range of facilities and the free choices that children can make in using them, the only difference being that teachers act in loco parentis.

It could therefore be argued that assistant headteacher Rachel Ward attributes much of the improvement in GCSE results at the school to an HE model!
