The College is currently fundraising for an all-weather pitch at the Senior School in Saighton as part of 'Our Sporting Vision'. All our pupils (including those attending the Infant and Junior School) would benefit from the state-of-the-art, floodlit pitch.
To have this facility on site will significantly increase the amount of time our pupils and teams can play sport, practise skills and participate in competitive fixtures. It will also allow us to realise an ambition to become the central hub of our local community.
We have set ourselves the ambitious goal of raising of £500,000 to deliver the all-weather pitch and hope to start building in the summer of 2017. We have made a great start and raised £300,000 since November 2016 but there is still a way to go!
If you can help us reach our target of £500,000 please use the button below to donate safely online.
You can also donate by cheque, made payable to 'Deeside Educational Trust Ltd'. Please write 'Pitch Donation' on the back of the cheque and return to The Bursary, Abbey Gate College, Chapel Lane, Saighton, Chester CH3 6EN.

In June 2016, phase 1 of 'Our Sporting Vision' was realised with the opening of The Teaching and Sports Pavilion by Mr Michael Owen. This facility has already made a huge impact on the range of activities we can offer the pupils in Physical Education and having this along with the all-weather pitch will mean we can provide the best of the best all our children.
There is a necessity in any school to keep moving forward and Abbey Gate College is no exception. We feel passionately that our pupils deserve the best that we can offer in all areas of their education and building new facilities to improve their experience and opportunities is an essential aspect of creating stimulating teaching and learning environments. Our dedicated Governing Body are clear in their vision for the College and have committed to investing funds in providing exciting new facilities.
A new Foundation and Infant School Building is to be built in the grounds of the current Infant and Junior School. This building will provide three spacious classrooms all with their own covered outdoor area, a new library, a Learning Enrichment area, and a new outdoor play space. The new building will also allow us to re-configure the main school building to create exciting spaces to teach art and design, music, science and to create a bigger library.

The College is committed to ensuring that its provides inspiring, modern and safe facilities in which the subject can be taught to the highest standard and plans have been submitted for two fully-equipped and cutting-edge laboratories to enhance facilities in the existing science department.
Additional space where our young scientists can study, discover and create will be an amazing addition to the College.
There are plans to significantly extend and reconfigure the Sixth Form Centre and Refectory. The provision of personal study zones will assist our students with their independent learning and a range of seminar classrooms will be incorporated for the teaching of A Level subjects. Together with a large open-plan social space, the new Sixth Form Centre will provide state-of-the-art facilities, which will meet the needs of older students.
