School place planning in Newcastle Borough

The borough of Newcastle is made up of two distinct areas:

A two-tier education system, with primary (4-11 years) and secondary (11- 16/18 years) schools, operates throughout the borough.

Printable map of Newcastle borough:

For the purpose of school place planning the borough is broken down into smaller planning areas which are used to plan the number of school places required. These have been grouped based on the geographical location of schools, and by assessing pupil movement between schools and catchment areas.


Newcastle

Newcastle has 30 primary schools, 1 infant school, 1 junior school and 7 secondary schools.  

To meet an increased need for secondary school places as a result of housing in the Madeley High School’s catchment area a project to increase the school by 0.5FE (75 places) is proposed.  This means that 15 additional places will be available in Year 7 each academic year from September 2024.

In the longer term additional school places may be required.

New schools

There are currently no new schools planned within the next five years in Newcastle borough.

Potentially one new primary school could be delivered beyond the next five years. This school may be required to mitigate the impact of local plan housing.


School expansions

There is one expansion project in Newcastle borough currently planned in the next five years:

Madeley High School

To meet an increased need for High school places due to planned housing development in the school's catchment area, a project to expand Madeley High School has been proposed. The project would enable additional places to be provided in the catchment area by increasing the Published Admission Number (PAN) of Madeley High School from 135 to 150 places from September 2024, providing an additional 15 Year 7 places each year. A public consultation on the expansion ended in December 2022.

There are currently no live consultations for this area.
