Northgate Primary School is a brand new school opening in Bridgwater in September 2017. We will open in several phases, the first phase of which will offer 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.


Northgate Primary School is due to open in September 2017. There will be a Reception class and a combined Year 1 and Year 2 class. Northgate Nursery will open in January 2018 for children from 30 months.

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

The Clevedon Learning Trust is a Multi Academy Trust formed on 1st January 2015. The Trust is made up from Clevedon School, Yeo Moor Primary School, Tickenham Church of England Primary School and Mary Elton Primary School. Northgate Primary School will be part of the Trust when it opens September 2017.

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.
