TLG Reading is run as a partnership between The Gate and the national children's charity Transforming Lives for Good (TLG), focusing on the needs of those who are struggling in school. It is one of a growing national network of schools supported by TLG.
We believe that each young person should know that they are valuable, unique and gifted and are able to achieve both now and in the future.
We believe that partnerships with local organisations, communities and individuals hold the key to unlocking great education and support for our students and their families, both in and out of the classroom.
We share a distinctive Christian ethos. In practice, the values of respect, care, love, acceptance and belonging for all will be upheld and encouraged among our staff, students and throughout our community.
