Born of a vision of a few men and women, Gateway School Trust was formed in 1987. In an independent Zimbabwe, the need for a school which would be Christian in philosophy, co-educational, multi-cultural and affordable was recognised. Six years after the formation of the Primary School in 1988, and with the High School growing fast, the Gateway Schools were extended to include an in-service staff development and teacher training programme. The purpose of this was primarily to train Christian teachers of a high calibre to staff Gateway schools, but also with a desire to see Christian educators influencing education and values in Zimbabwe in years to come.
So in January 1993, on the premises of Gateway High School, four students and a Tutor came together to realise this vision.
The institution was originally known as Gateway Teacher Training Programme (GTTP). With its increasing success in teacher training, GTTP not only opened out its teacher training programme to students who would not necessarily feed into the Gateway Schools but also moved into its current, bigger premises.
A Diploma in Sports Management was added soon after.
GTTP is now known as Gateway Christian Training College and is made up of the following departments:
- Teacher Training
- Professional Development

Romans 12: 1-2 (The Message)
1-2 So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life – your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking – around life – and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
