Lum Head Primary School on Troutbeck Road opened in 1965 and comes under the Stockport Metropolitan Borough. Having received an overall ‘good’ rating from Ofsted in 2019, it has around 200 pupils aged 4-11.

Formed following the merger of Broadway Boys School and Kingsway Girls School, the Kingsway School is a mixed school specialising in computing, maths and science. It has two locations, Foxland Road in Gatley and Broadway in Cheadle, linked by a pedestrian subway. It received a ‘good’ rating from Ofsted in 2020.

Transport Links

Running between Longsight and Wilmslow, Gatley railway station is on the Styal line, with three trains per hour southbound to Manchester Airport and one continuing to Crewe via Wilmslow. There are three services northbound to Manchester Piccadilly, one going to Liverpool Lime Street via Newton-le-Willows and one going further to Barrow-in-Furness or Windermere.

Stagecoach Manchester predominately provides the bus services in the area, with key routes including the 11 between Altrincham and Stockport via Timerley, Baguely, Wythenshawe and Cheadle, and the 370/1, which has a similar route but does not visit  Wythenshawe.

Gately is close to the M60 and the eastern terminus of the M56, which allows an easy commute to Manchester and other notable destinations, including North Wales and the Wirral Peninsula.

Eating Out

Gatley is home to several dining venues catering to diverse tastes. Its most popular restaurants include Bodega, a Spanish tapas restaurant just a few minutes walk from Gatley train station, serving cocktails, light bites and hearty meals. Piccolo, which lies in the heart of Gatley, offers an extensive Italian menu, including bottomless brunch on Saturdays.

If Indian food is what you’re after, Sadagar provides a rich selection of balti and traditional Indian dishes, including a Sunday buffet special, whilst Armenique is a small family coffee shop and winery that offers fresh sandwiches and salads made in-house for those looking for a quick bite.

There truly is something for everyone in Gatley; whether you’re having a meal for a special occasion or looking for your lunchtime fix, you’re sure to find what you’re craving.


Gatley’s shopping landscape offers a quaint yet diverse shopping experience. Pound Express Plus is a treasure trove for bargain hunters, whilst Remember When is a second-hand shop perfect for finding unique items. For your grocery needs, you can find everything you need at Co-op.

If you’re keen on eco-friendly living, Gatley Refillery, a health and beauty shop on Church Road, has in-store pick-up, and Ridge Gatley on Park Road specialises in embroidery and printing, with high customer satisfaction.

These stores form a comprehensive shopping scene that combines everyday essentials with special interests and services, ensuring a varied retail environment in Gatley.


Gatley’s history, deeply rooted in agriculture and material trades, transitioned through significant land use changes from common farming to industrial ventures in textile manufacture. The development of Gatley Carrs, from marshy grounds to a hub of activity and later to a part of the scenic Mersey Valley, reflects the area’s adaptability.

The local industry, which was once thriving with handloom weaving and button making, saw a shift with the industrial age, making way for contemporary Gatley’s diverse community spaces.

Leisure Activities

Gatley offers diverse leisure activities, blending historical sites with natural beauty and community events. The restored First World War Memorial Clock Tower stands as a historical landmark. Gatley Recreation Ground and Walter Stansby Memorial Park provide spaces for sports and tranquillity, while Scholes Park hosts community events.
