Head of Teaching & Learning

Gateways is an alternative education provision that exists to support the countless young people today, between the ages of 14-25, who are or have struggled to remain in mainstream education. Students are referred to Gateways as school refusers, struggle with severe anxiety, debilitating depression, eating disorders, traumas of all kinds and often as a result of serious medical issues.

During and post COVID, there has been a 56% rise in enquiries to Gateways, as the numbers increase and more and more students are unable to access the mainstream education system.

We believe that every young person should have the same opportunity to progress and thrive, regardless of the challenges they face. Gateways delivers a broad curriculum, academic and vocational, that caters for the interests, abilities and specific needs of each young person that attends. We aim to prepare them for a life beyond education.

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.


In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.


Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
