New School Plans

Following the Parent Information sessions, we can now reveal further information about the plans and site for Newquay Primary Academy.

Newquay Primary Academy will be co-located with Newquay Tretherras secondary school.

Primary pupils will be able to learn in specialist facilities not accessible to most primary school pupils, including science and technology rooms.

The Primary School will have a separate entrance and access, with the option to access shared facilities across the whole site.

Pre-opening consultation questionnaire

As part of the process of opening a new school, Cornwall Education Learning Trust is required to hold a consultation exercise (under Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010) to determine whether the Trust should enter into a funding agreement with the Secretary of State to set up a free school.

We will be running a six-week consultation period from 5th October to 16th November 2020. This consultation is an important part of the pre-opening stage both to raise local awareness of our plans for Newquay Primary Academy and to satisfy the legal requirements around setting up a free school. 

We would very much appreciate you taking the time to complete our consultation questionnaire, particularly if you are a member of the Newquay community.

Apply for a place

Our brand new academy is admitting new Reception pupils only from September 2021. We are able to offer 60 places in our Reception classes. Growing our school year-by-year from Reception will ensure we can provide an outstanding education for every year group from entry. At Newquay Primary Academy our core aim is to provide a safe, happy and challenging learning environment where every child can experience success.  

Our admission arrangements – including over-subscription criteria should we receive more applications than we have places available – are detailed on the Apply for a Place section of our website.

You will be able to apply for a Reception place by submitting an application form to Cornwall Council from 1 September 2020.

Please note that there is no advantage in applying early. All applications received by the deadline will be considered equally in the allocation process.  However, there would be a disadvantage in applying after the deadline. This is because it is possible that our school will already be full.  

Book a place at one of our parent information sessions being held at Newquay’s Lighthouse Cinema on Tuesday 6th October.

Our new school

Our new school is due to be built by Caledonian on the site of a former education block at Newquay Tretherras. The design is for a two-storey building along with an outdoor physical education pitch, netball and tennis courts. The new school will be a two-form entry with capacity for up to 420 children. Talks have been taking place about opening Newquay Primary Academy since 2016 when the plans were first put forward.

We are excited to be opening our doors to our first Reception class in September 2021.
