New £30m school planned for Gosforth

22 June 2015

Gosforth Federated Academies currently provides outstanding education to over 2200 students between the ages of 9-18 at Gosforth Junior High Academy, Gosforth Academy and Gosforth Sixth Form. The Great Park is already growing fast and there are planning applications for more than 3000 homes. To cope with growing demand in the area, we propose a new school at Gosforth Great Park to cater for students between the ages of 9-16. This will complement the plans of the local authority to provide primary places. We hope to open for years 5 and 9 in September 2017. We are currently registering interest for places and would like to hear your thoughts on what new school provision should offer the community.

Dynamic and diverse, our successes include national recognition for being in the top 100 schools in England for results in the English Baccalaureate for 2014. Some of our specialities include languages, teacher training and educational leadership. Students are exceptionally well cared for and supported and the rich cultural and social mix prepares them for life in the 21st century. We work in close partnership with parents and carers in a caring, friendly and supportive atmosphere. We have a relentless drive towards ever higher personal and academic standards. As the largest school Sixth Form in the North East, we offer comprehensive choices, specialised support and outstanding opportunities. Throughout the age range we include an exclusive and exciting range of enrichment including sport, the arts and more. Like our current schools Gosforth Great Park Academy will truly enable students to ‘Create their future!’.
