Northgate Primary School is a brand new school that opened in Bridgwater in September 2017. We will open in several phases, the first phase of which offered places to Reception and Year 1/2 pupils. Northgate Primary School will open its nursery and pre-school in January 2018. We are committed to ensuring that every child will benefit from a brilliant education in every one of our schools and we are very excited about seeing this become a reality for every learner at Northgate Primary School.

We place children at the heart of all our decision-making, ensuring our schools and communities can make informed, ambitious choices about their future direction and benefit from genuine collaboration at all levels, across schools and local communities. We expect Northgate Primary School to deliver a brilliant education from the moment its doors open in September 2017.


A warm welcome to all of our reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children! We wish you a happy and successful time at Northgate Primary School.

Message from Heather Good, Executive Headteacher

“I am totally committed to the philosophy that underpins Northgate Primary School. We will establish a creative and innovative place of learning in the centre of Bridgwater where children will be encouraged to be as successful as they can in all that they do.

We want the pupils of Northgate to develop lively and enquiring minds and to acquire knowledge and skills relevant to a fast changing world. We are eager to work in partnership with families and the local community to support the children, enabling them to develop and flourish, fulfilling their potential at school and in life as good citizens.”

Clevedon Learning Trust

Northgate Primary School is part of the Clevedon Learning Trust; a Multi Academy Trust formed on 1st January 2015. The Trust is made up from school clusters in the Clevedon and Bridgwater localities.

As a Trust we understand the value of a school-led education system and our role in partnerships with other schools. Our principles are based on our collective responsibility to children in ours and the wider community. The Trust was formed with a shared vision to provide and support high-quality inclusive education that is student-focused and achieves excellent outcomes. The Clevedon Learning Trust is able to provide an inspiring and coherent education from age 4 to age 18.
