Making our vision a reality!

Let’s make our vision a reality Our bid for our new Church of England co-educational First School for children aged 4 – 9 is expected to be submitted to the Department for Education in the spring 2018.

North Gosforth Church of England First School plans to open with Reception and Year 1 classes and admit the same number of Nursery, Reception and Year 1 pupils each year thereafter, reaching full capacity of 300 pupils when at full capacity. The school will operate an admissions policy in accordance with the School Admissions Code and will welcome all children of all faiths and none.

Co-educational, non-selective and free to attend, North Gosforth Church of England First School is being proposed by Northern Lights Learning Trust to help meet the growing need for additional high quality primary school places in the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Local Authority area and also to give families additional choice of a high quality education with Christian values and strong pastoral care for their children. The school will have a strong focus on nurturing the potential of each child through an education delivering progress and achievement for all in a supportive Church of England ethos.

There is clear need for a co-educational Church of England first school in the area, and this new school will offer a high standard of education and increase parental choice.

We need to demonstrate support from the local community to make this happen.
