The Gosforth Group is delighted to announce the opening this week of our two new schools: Callerton Academy and Great Park Academy.
At Great Park Academy 60 year 5 and at Callerton Academy 120 year 7 students form our first cohorts. All students will benefit from excellent facilities, a broad and balanced curriculum, great opportunities for enrichment, and all students will study Mandarin.
Both academies are opening in purpose built temporary accommodation while the permanent schools are completed. Initially Great Park Academy is situated adjacent to Gosforth Academy, while Callerton Academy opens its doors in Newcastle’s Graingertown.
Gosforth Group schools are, above all, happy and welcoming places where students work hard and where they find friendship, enrichment and support. We encourage difference and embrace diversity. We never forget the importance of fun, enjoyment and inclusivity in all that we do. They are amazing places to work, grow up, study and thoroughly enjoy learning. We believe that education is for life. It helps us to make sense of the world, our place within it and how we can contribute; making things better for everyone. We’re truly confident that our students make a difference. At Gosforth Group schools our students create all our futures!
Hugh Robinson, CEO Gosforth Group, said:
“Gosforth Group is delighted to have reached this important moment and we are thrilled that such an important entitlement for our children and communities is now beginning. Gosforth Group aspires to be the transformational offer that we know families in Newcastle so richly deserve.
Both schools will impact positively not just on the learners and young people who access them, but the feeder schools, and communities from which they come.”
