Open Gate welcomed 103 primary school pupils and 302 grammar school students to its 18th school year
Petra Dobešová, previously the managing director of OPEN GATE - gymnázium a základní škola, s.r.o., has been named the Head of Open Gate School. The school has a stable body of teaching staff, just under a third of whom are male and a fifth of whom are native speakers of languages other than Czech.
For the third and final time this academic year, the OG Journalism Club has lovingly created and is proud to present Edition 3 of the school newspaper.
School Leaving Exam
We prepare students for the International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, as well as for the Czech state school leaving exams. At the end of their studies, the students decide for themselves which exams to take. They often choose both.
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.
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.
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.
Tens of young people have already graduated from Open Gate Grammar School. These include individuals who went on to become doctors, scientists, lawyers, architects, entrepreneurs, economists and artists… in fact all manner of professions.
