Thank you for showing an interest in Berwick Middle School. We offer pupils the very best education where pupils access a challenging and engaging curriculum with specialist teachers across a broad range of subjects. In 2019 we celebrated our best ever results, making us one of the highest performing middle schools in Northumberland. Staff strive to ensure that every one of our pupils fulfils or exceeds their potential. Ofsted rated Berwick Middle School as ‘Good’ in all areas noting that:
'The school has a friendly and hardworking environment and pupils are taught very well across a range of different subjects.’
‘Teaching continues to improve…and is consistently strong across the school.’
‘Pupils’ attitudes to their learning are exemplary’
‘Staff work hard to ensure that pupils access a well-rounded education and a wide range of extra-curricular activities’
‘There is a strong, tangible ethos of learning in classrooms’
‘Pupils work together extremely well and as a result, support and develop each others’ learning and confidence.’
Statement from Clare Shaw, Chair of Governors of the Three Bridges Federation
Recently, as part of its multi million pound investment in schooling, Northumberland Council announced their intention to allocate £40 million to replace the ageing Berwick Academy buildings and improve the delivery of education in the Berwick area.
Given the proximity of Tweedmouth and Berwick Middle Schools to Berwick Academy, conversations have long been ongoing between the Headteachers and Governors of those schools, focusing on how opportunities for students in the Berwick catchment area might be improved. The allocation of this funding has provided the stimulus for the Middle Schools to move forward with their vision
Having reviewed several options, The Three Bridges Federation, which provides governance and oversight to both Middle Schools, has agreed to investigate joining a multi-academy trust. Berwick Academy has also agreed to partner with the Middle Schools in this activity.
It is believed that this approach will allow all three schools to benefit from cost savings with suppliers, which will allow them to spend more of their funding on the children, allow the schools to deliver a curriculum that meets the particular challenges of the area and provide additional opportunities using some of the technology improvements identified during the recent pandemic.
The Three Bridges Federation considers this as an extremely positive move and looks forward to sharing further information with you in due course.
