Headteacher's blog


Welcome to Millgate School,

We are a special school in every sense of the word and passionately believe in our ambition to transform lives and inspire futures.

Our aim is for everybody who comes into contact with our school to leave richer for the experience. We are a dedicated community of staff and pupils who in partnership with our federated school Keyham Lodge, have been on an upward trajectory over the last 5 years.
