Formerly established as Gateway International School in 1997 in Sri Lanka, the school was renamed Gateway College in 2005 when it expanded into the tertiary education sector.
With the establishment of Gateway College, the Gateway Group has brought new dimension to the institution whereby it provides education from play group (2 years 6 months+) to degree level. The college has four branches in Rajagiriya, Kandy, Negombo and Bambalapitiya.
Gateway College follows English language curricula from the foundation to the advanced level. It seeks to provide education that equals highest international standards even as it retains the essence of Lankan culture. The college is accredited by Edexcel, UK; Cambridge International Examinations and NCC Education, UK.
The college invites reputed educationists, both from Sri Lanka and abroad, to conduct staff development workshops. These workshops help teachers in attaining fluency in English and at the same time update them on modern teaching methodologies. It regularly conducts Staff Quality Enhancement programmes which are aimed at improving the teaching learning process. Additionally, the teachers are sent to UK on teacher exchange programmes.
Gateway lays emphasis on research and development. Its teachers have published course books for primary levels in science, mathematics, history and other subjects.
Pedagogy at Gateway College is benchmarked against what the best of schools in England provide. To avoid compromising on the quality of education, it does not enrol more than 25 students in each class.
Gateway boasts of state-of-the-art infrastructure. It has invested in interactive whiteboards that aid auditory and kinesthetic learning. Students from all grades have access to the Internet.
Gateway has partnered with NCC Education, UK in developing an internationally accepted Information and Communications Technology programme for other schools. The programme has so far been introduced in twelve countries across three continents.
Having consistently built practices that are benchmarked against world-class educational systems, Gateway College has earned the reputation of one of the best international educational institutes in Sri Lanka.
