The Trust

North Gosforth Church of England First School is being established by Northern Lights Learning Trust, supported by Newcastle Diocesan Education Board, and will collaborate with the wider Diocesan family and local family of schools. The school will be supported by Benedict Biscop Church of England Academy which is a National Support school and has a good track record and the capacity to support a new school.

We aim to become a focus for the area as ‘a school at the heart of the community and the community at the heart of our school’. Facilities at the school will be made available for appropriate wider use as part of our collaborative work with the local community.

The school will be run by a Board of Governors who will be accountable to the charitable Trust which oversees the school. In addition the school will be accountable to the Secretary of State for Education through the terms of its Funding Agreement.
