Primary Academy






Welcome to Gatehouse Primary Academy. We are a large, coastal Primary School which became part of the ‘First Federation Trust’ on 1st July 2017. The First Federation is a Multi-Academy Trust of primary schools across Devon. (To see other schools that are in the Trust, please look at the First Federation Trust website).


We currently have over 360 children on roll, split into 13 classes. We aim to provide a caring, safe and stimulating environment for all children to learn. Each child is supported and encouraged to do their best and take part in a wide range of opportunities and experiences building happy memories of their school days. Our talented team of educators enjoy their work and the inspiring environment makes learning fun and raises standards.


If you would like to see for yourselves, please contact us and we can arrange to give you a guided tour and to answer any questions that you may have.
