About our school

First built in 1888 within sight of Norwich Cathedral, Mousehold Heath and the City Walls, Magdalen Gates has a long history of working closely with the community to provide a happy and successful environment for learning.

At our school, staff and governors are committed to a partnership between home and school. We aim to create a stimulating and supportive environment, so that children are able to develop to the full extent of their ability.

Our Vision for Education:

“Magdalen Gates working together to give every child the best”.

Our School Values:

To provide a broad, balanced, challenging, yet realistic curriculum tailored to the needs of individual children when necessary.

To establish a whole school learning culture for children and adults alike.

To develop high self esteem through fulfilment of academic, creative and expressive potential.

We develop regard and respect for each other as well as one’s self, through social, moral, cultural and spiritual education.

To develop an awareness and understanding of democracy and citizenship.

To continue a commitment to professional development of both teaching and non teaching staff, including Governors.

To build relationships with the wider community and develop home/school partnerships.
