Northgate Primary School is open!
Northgate Primary School opened its doors on Thursday 7th September 2017 for the first time to welcome Reception children to the Explorers class and Year 1 and 2 children to the Blake class.
The new school, which was built on the site of the former Blake Hospital, will be part of a Bridgwater hub for the Clevedon Learning Trust .
Executive Headteacher Heather Good, who also oversees Westover Green Community School, said: "It is just fantastic to be starting with a truly blank slate - the facilities are amazing, the classrooms are incredible - I feel very lucky to be here."
The school currently has 43 children and the plan is for a new class to start each year until the school reaches its 420 capacity. With the developments and increase in population in Bridgwater this may happen faster should the need arise.
A 26-place nursery for children age 30 months to 4 years will also open at the school from January 2018.
