Transfer to Middle and High Schools

At the start of the Autumn term when a child enters Year 4. The Local Authority (LA) send out transfer information packs to Year 4 parents. The pack lists schools and information concerning procedures applications and time deadlines to submit the form for your child/ren. Children transfer to any one of the Middle Schools in the Gosforth area (the majority go to Gosforth East Middle School which is situated on the same campus as this school). Regular liaison meetings take place between staff of the Middle and First Schools on curriculum content to ensure continuity and progression.

At the end of the academic year in which their 13th birthday occurs, the children transfer from the Middle School to Gosforth Academy. Regular liaison meetings are held between the Principle and the staff of Gosforth Academy and the Headteachers of the Middle and First Schools, which 'feed' into Gosforth Academy.
