As part of the process of opening a Free School, the Department for Education require a consultation* under Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010. This enables local residents, staff and governors from local schools, parents, councillors, community groups and any other interested parties to share their views.
The consultation period for Great Park Academy will run from 9 November 2020 to 7 December 2020. This is an important step in our journey to opening in September 2021. We are looking forward to listening to your views in order to provide you with the best school possible.
We are keen to ensure that we deliver a school that meets local needs and requirements and welcome your views. To share these with us please complete our online questionnaire by clicking on the link below. You can also email a hard copy of the questionnaire to S10consultation@ga.newcastle.sch.uk, or by post to Great Park Academy, Free School Consultation, Gosforth Academy, Knightsbridge, Great North Road, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE3 2JH
*Please note this consultation is not related to any building or planning applications surrounding the new school; it is solely to consult on whether appropriate persons support the Trust to enter into a Funding Agreement with the Secretary of State for Education to run Great Park Academy. There will be a further consultation on site layout ahead of the planning application.
