Grammar School

We teach the way we would like to learn ourselves, interactively, in small groups, with an emphasis on personal development and talent. Our students matriculate with the Czech ‘maturita’ and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. However, we prepare them mainly for life.

School Leaving Exams

We prepare students for the International Baccalaureate (IB) exam, as well as for the Czech state school leaving exam. At the end of their studies, the students decide for themselves which exam to take. They often choose both.

Pedagogical Teams

What is an Open Gate teacher like? Above all, inspiring. The international teaching staff consists of kind, patient professionals with diverse academic and teaching experience. They bring non-traditional perspectives to teaching and are open to lifelong learning.

Acceptance Procedure

We are an eight-year grammar school that accepts students after they complete their fifth year of primary school. It is also possible to enter the school in a higher year. We use Cermat state tests for entrance exams though we also highly value a spoken interview.

School Campus

A top-class laboratory, music studio, school theatre and a richly stocked library. What’s more, you’ll find a swimming pool, fitness centre, sports courts and a sports hall. We cater for the development of every talent.

Extracurricular Activities

We believe that a lot can be learned about life outside of classroom instruction, sometimes even more valuable than school itself. In order to develop the various talents of our students we offer them a range of diverse extracurricular activities.


We think that helping people is normal. This is something that school should teach everyone. For this reason we encourage our students to help others each and every day.

Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

Open Gate’s approach to all activities meets the requirements of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (DofE). Many Open Gate students are holders of one or more of the awards from this programme.


Hundreds of young people have graduated from Open Gate Grammar School. These include doctors, scientists, lawyers, architects, entrepreneurs, economists, artists... short, all kinds of professions.
