Callerton Academy

Gosforth Federated Academies Multi Academy Trust is delighted to announce that the Secretary of State for Education has confirmed that its proposal to build a second new school, Callerton Academy, has been agreed. This is a significant development towards providing much needed school places in our rapidly growing city.

Quotation from Hugh Robinson:-

“We would like to thank Newcastle City Council for the support and guidance they have given during the process. We look forward to working with them and other partners to develop a school that will have, at its foundation, our bespoke PRAISE code supported by teaching of the highest standard. The Gosforth systems will be embedded into this new school and we expect it to be an outstanding institution from day one of its opening”.


Expressions of interest

Dear Parents/interested parties,

Callerton Academy is a key part of the City Council’s school place strategy, and will provide additional school places at secondary school level for the increased pupil numbers coming through local primary schools. In addition, the new school will serve the increase in population from new housing developments, especially in the Lower, Middle and Upper Callerton and Kenton Bank Foot areas.

The school will be an 11-16 (year groups 7 to 11) school, with a proposed opening date of September 2020. The exact site has not been finalised, but it is hoped that this will be agreed in the very near future.

We would like to invite expressions of interest, via email, for the future school from parents in the area. Please title your email: CALLERTON ACADEMY.  Send your email to and state the following:

  • Your name and relationship to the child/children (e.g. Mother)
  • Post code
  • Telephone number
  • Email address
  • Number of children
  • Date/s of birth of child/children

Please note that we will not reply directly to your expression of interest.

Any information regarding the bid, and the general progress of this project, will be posted on our website as and when it becomes available.
