Schools review

We've completed an extensive consultation on the future of our schools.

The consultation - in September 2014 - asked for views from more than 93,000 households, as well as schools and employers.

The majority of those who responded were in favour of plans to remodel the borough’s education system, making sure it's in the right shape and ready to face the challenges and opportunities ahead.

We propose a programme of planned changes to:

  • reduce surplus places
  • plan for demand
  • improve key stage 5 performance
  • build financial stability
  • build new schools
  • involve employers more

It does not propose:

  • school closures
  • changes to the three-tier education system in Monkseaton and Whitley Bay

You can read the details of this option in the document below.

We'll now continue to work with Headteachers and Governing Bodies to develop and finalise more proposals, and make sure there is no disruption to the education of young people across North Tyneside.
