We are delighted to announce that Northumberland County Council has given the go ahead for a new Sports Hall for our school.

Headteacher Clare Savage said: “It is fabulous news and we are all delighted that we are going to have a sports hall.We have some high-quality outdoor facilities, such as the athletics track that we share with Morpeth Harriers. However, the school has never had a sports hall and it has been difficult at times to accommodate our ambitious PE curriculum during the winter months.

This new facility will greatly enhance PE provision and will also contribute to the provision of excellent sports facilities for the wider community.”

Simon Taylor, co-CEO at Cheviot Learning Trust, added: “I would like to thank Northumberland County Council for supporting this much-needed facility at the school. We have worked closely with its officers for a number of years to develop these plans and are very grateful to gain approval for the project, which will make a huge difference to future generations of students and staff at the school.

The project was included in the recently approved capital programme as part of the council’s budget, with £2.456million to be provided by the local authority in 2025/26 and the rest from external funding over the next two years.”
