North Newcastle West Learning Trust

History of The North Newcastle West Learning Trust, September 2013-October 2016

NNWLT were a Trust of eight Foundation Primary Schools situated in the north and west area of Newcastle upon Tyne. The schools within the Trust were; Cheviot Primary School, Farne,Primary School, Kenton Bar Primary School, Kingston Park Primary School, Mountfield Primary School, North Fawdon Primary School, Stocksfield Avenue Primary School, Wyndham Primary School.

We were established in September 2013 and were the very first Schools Trust in the North East, bringing together over 2,500 pupils  between the ages of 3 and 11. We work with our business partners; John Lewis, Newcastle International Airport , Northumbria University and Newcastle City Council for the benefit of the schools. We recognised that each of our schools has a unique identity but believed that by working as a Trust we would strengthen and increase the capacity of all our schools through collaborative working, shared experience and expertise to improve the opportunities for all our learners. 

Since the Trust started we have been able to develop relationships, build stronger links with each of our schools and share good practice, ideas and resources. We have worked together on cross Trust events including a launch event, a concert celebrating our first year as a Trust, and PE and Sports events such as our Trust football tournament and cross country competition. We built on this foundation by working collaboratively to further improve opportunities for our children, families and staff and the wider community.

We share a set of common values and principles and were committed to our aims as a Trust,

'To provide the best educational opportunities and experiences to help our children, their families and communities achieve lifelong wellbeing and economic success'

NNWLT came to a close in September 2016, following a period of great success for all involved, as the Trust schools, Governing bodies and school communities collectively chose to convert to Multi Academy Trust Status in the academic year 2016/17

Thank you to everyone, especially the Trust Board Members for their support and hard work over the last three years, we look forward to building upon the strong relationships and foundation work undertaken by the Trust as we move forward together as a Multi Academy Trust

Congratulations to everyone on a job well done for the children and families within our schools and communities.
