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.
