New Penshaw Academy was inspected by Ofsted on Wednesday 18th March and Thursday 19th March 2015 and was judged to be a Good school.

Welcome to the wonderful world of New Penshaw Academy, part of the Inspire Multi Academy Trust, where every child is a learner.

We continuously strive to provide all of our young learners with a rich, creative, exciting and engaging curriculum that enables them to build upon their skills base year on year. Our children have high expectations of themselves and of every member of our school community, this would reflect in the high standards within all areas of the curriculum.

We are extremely proud of all of our achievements within New Penshaw Academy – academic, sporting, social and musical.

Within our school, pupil voice is clearly evident. Our school council are involved in all aspects of school life and ensure that all children’s voices are heard. Children feel safe and secure in our school and each individual is valued and respected.

Our wider community work is clearly evidenced. Parent voice also plays an integral part in school life. We hold regular Family Learning mornings as well as Parent Family Learning courses, where qualifications are gained at the end.
