Exciting changes at Gateway Alliance

The Gateway Alliance Directors are excited to announce a new phase of operation for the company. 

Following an extensive period of review and consultation, the Directors have taken the decision to support the set-up of a new entity – Gateway Alliance (Education Services) Ltd – to take on the day-to-day operations of the school company. The new company will be led by Helen Martin, our former Executive Director, and will have a broader remit across a wider geographical area.

The decision has been taken following receipt of a range of professional advice and stakeholder views and Directors believe that it will provide a stronger and more sustainable business model in the longer term. Warwickshire Local Authority are also in full support of the plans.

Gateway will continue to be fully committed to improving the life chances of children by being at the forefront of professional learning for schools. Under this new operating model, we will be in the best position to not only continue to provide high-quality support to schools across Warwickshire but also many more across the region and beyond.

The decision has come about as a response to the changing landscape for schools both locally and nationally. Directors believe that the work of Gateway Alliance will be more sustainable in the longer term when operating through a more commercial business model which also more fully represents schools from a broader geographical area.

Our current, loyal customers should not see any significant change in day-to-day operations and will hopefully begin to see both service improvements and wider opportunities as a result of these changes.
