New North Academy



We are really delighted that you are considering joining our school and securing a place for your child. There are so many opportunities that we are sure you and they will enjoy, in and beyond the classroom.

We are incredibly proud of our school, our children and their achievements. The best way to find out more is to visit us, that way we can talk face to face and get a real feel for the place. It will really help guide and shape your decision making. A visit would also allow you to see learning in action and to speak to our children, who are the very best advocates of our school.

Please do contact the school office directly, and speak with Lauren Jones or Nimira Lalji who will be delighted to arrange a time to visit us at a time when a member of staff can offer you a tour.
