About our school

We are a 3 form entry first school located in the Great Park, a residential area in Gosforth in the north of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

We are part of the Gosforth Pyramid Family of schools and the Gosforth School’s trust. The Trust enables all the schools to work closely together and the Pyramid enables our children to have a smooth transition to middle school.

Brunton is a school of lifelong learning for children, staff, parents and the wider community, where children are nurtured enabling them to develop a love of learning, achieve their full potential and to be valued as a person. We recognise that every child is special and unique. At Brunton, every child matters.

The teaching and support staff work closely with parents to ensure that all the children have the best start to their education. Our aim is to establish a good pace for learning whilst enabling each child to be an individual. We encourage the whole school community to respect and care for one another and continually strive for excellence in everything we do.

The curriculum is led by the children in developing their own learning and results in an exciting and creative experience. We are committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning – achieved through a combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise; to ensure that all children fulfil their potential.
