Gateway Community High opened its doors in 2021 and is steadily growing its capacity each year for more students to complete their Stage 5 studies (Yrs 9 & 10). We are also committed to extending our program to Stage 6 (Years 11/12) in future years.

Gateway Community High provides a Gateway to learning in an environment that delivers a positive, personalised and inclusive experience for young people that will set them up for future success.

Our small class sizes and supportive learning environment means that we are ideally suited to motivated students who have not thrived or felt supported in mainstream education. Gateway Community High offers tailored support and special assistance to help each student achieve to the best of their ability.

We are passionate about seeing young people succeed, whether that be in schooling, socially or personally. We aim to empower them to create better futures for themselves, their families and their communities.
