What's happening where you live?

Gosforth and Newcastle Great Park School Places

Middle school and high school places will be provided through the proposed new school at Newcastle Great Park for year 5 to year 11 pupils and the expansion of Gosforth Central Middle School.

The new middle/secondary school will be run by Gosforth Federated Academies Trust at Newcastle Great Park. The Department for Education will be responsible for delivering the middle-secondary school on site. As this will not be built and occupied by September 2020, work is taking place to ensure there are enough places to accommodate pupils leaving the feeder schools. 

When the 2020 admissions window opens in the Autumn term of 2019, parents/carers should apply as usual for places in their preferred schools and are strongly encouraged to use all of the preferences available, including their ‘feeder middle school’.

What's on the Great Park?

The scheme is being delivered by the Great Park Consortium, which includes the house builders Persimmon Homes, and Taylor Wimpey. Parts of the development have also been built by Barratt.
