Making our vision a reality!

Let’s make our vision a reality Our bid for our new Church of England co-educational secondary school in the Wynyard area is expected to be submitted to the Department for Education in September 2018.

Wynyard Church of England Academy plans to open with six Year 7 classes (180 places) and admit the same number of Year 7 pupils each year thereafter, reaching full capacity of 900 pupils. The school will operate an admissions policy in accordance with the School Admissions Code and will welcome all children of all faiths and none.

Co-educational, non-selective and free to attend, Wynyard Church of England Academy is being proposed by the Durham Diocesan Board of Education and will offer a broad and balanced curriculum which prepares students well for higher education or employment. The school with offer excellent pastoral support within a caring high-expectation ethos and an emphasis on moral values and it will be a family friendly school with breakfast club and after school provision offering a wide range of enrichment activities.


We need to demonstrate support from the local community to make this happen.
