West End Schools' Trust (WEST)

The West End Schools' Trust (WEST) is a charitable company of seven primary schools and partner organisations located in the inner west of the city of Newcastle upon Tyne. Formed in January 2015, WEST is responsible for the education of over two thousand six hundred pupils and employs over two hundred and fifty teachers, teaching assistants and administrative staff.
 
The WEST school catchments cover an area of ten square miles that are bordered by the River Tyne, the Northumberland County boundary and the main conurbation of the City of Newcastle. There is a rich industrial and historic heritage with Hadrian’s Wall bisecting the cluster. The catchments are socio-economically mixed. When pupils leave the schools they are well prepared for the next phase of their educational journey with standards at, and above, the national averages in reading, writing and mathematics. All of the schools are unique and although they may vary in size and context, Ofsted inspections for the cluster reveal effective schools that work in collaboration for the benefit of the whole of the community.
