An application to establish a new Church of England Secondary School in the Wynyard area, an 11-16 co-educational school, will be submitted to the Department for Education in November 2018. We are waiting for new information to be published by the Department about the application process and timescales.

The school is being proposed by Durham Diocesan Board of Education to help meet the growing need for additional high quality secondary places in the Wynyard area and also to give families additional choice of a high quality education with Christian values and strong pastoral care for their children.

You can help make this happen! The plans for Wynyard Church of England Academy will only become a reality with the support of the community. In our application to the Department for Education, we need to demonstrate the level of support for the school, particularly of parents and carers with children aged 0 -16.

If you are a parent of a child for whom you would consider Wynyard Church of England Academy, please register your support by completing the form below by Friday 26th October 2018. 

If you do not have a child starting secondary school but support this proposed school, please email us at

Thank you – your support will help make our vision for Wynyard Church of England Academy a reality.
