School Gateway App

The School Gateway App is an improved text messaging system used by our school.

From time to time, we send information to parents via text message to your mobile phone.

A new, free, smartphone app for parents is now available for download called ‘School Gateway’ for Apple (iPhone 3GS or later, iPad, iPod Touch) and Android (2.3 / Gingerbread or later) devices.

You can download this new app to your phone (free) it helps us give the best possible communication with parents – and saves the school money.

Set-up process

1. Search for “School Gateway” or click the link below


or in the Apple App Store/Google Play or on your phone or click the icon below.



2. Install the app and if you are asked then say yes to “Allow Push Notifications”

3. When you launch School Gateway for the first time, please select ‘New User’ and enter the email address and mobile telephone number you have registered with the school

4. The system will send a PIN code to your phone; please enter this PIN code and the app will be activated for you.

As soon as you’ve got the system set-up, all of the text messages we send you will appear in the app; you’ll receive notifications/alerts as normal.
