Welcome to all our new Year 7 families...

We are delighted that you have chosen Callerton Academy for the next stage in your child's education.

This section of our school website has been created specifically to help you navigate through any challenges or worries you may have with regards to the transition process from Year 6 to Year 7. Our aim is to make the information as clear and concise as possible.

In this section you will find everything you need to know about Callerton Academy, including information about our temporary site, our school day, our school prospectus and specific information for children who may be joining us with additional needs. We will publish all letters that we send out from now until the start of September.

Please remember that should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email our school office:

It is really important to ensure you include your child’s name and current primary school in your email to help us with your enquiry.

Callerton Academy

Our Temporary Home

Callerton Academy opened for the first 120 Year 7 students in September 2021 in a newly refurbished and reconfigured school in Newcastle’s Graingertown. Callerton Academy will be situated here until the new permanent site opens.

Gosforth Group and Newcastle City Council are delighted to be able to offer free transport between the permanent site and the temporary accommodation. This will be in the form of a coach for some pupils or a public transport travel pass.
