Dear Parent / Carer

Gosforth Junior High Academy

Virtual Opening for Prospective Parents

This is the time of year when decisions have to be made regarding the next stage of your child’s education. Current restrictions have curtailed our normal transitional experiences and so instead, we invite you to visit our website where we have collated the guidance, advice and information for parents and pupils alike.

Unfortunately, we cannot hold our experience mornings for Year 4 pupils and Open Evening for parents / carers as we normally would do, however, our website aims to provide you with the detailed information that you would have received at this time of year.

Please visit where you will find the following:

  • Presentations from Principal of School, Ms Waugh and Pastoral Leader of Key Stage 2, Mr Blakey
  • A list of answers from the most commonly asked questions from parents with children moving into Year 5
  • Videos of current pupils explaining what life is like at GJHA
  • Subject specific videos detailing what our curriculum has to offer
  • A virtual tour

Our principal aim at Gosforth Junior High Academy is to encourage high expectations and high standards of achievement, both academic and personal. Our curriculum is designed to offer learning experiences, which extend pupils and promote their personal development, regardless of academic, social or cultural background. We believe that a calm, friendly, disciplined atmosphere, in which hard work and co-operation are respected, is the best way to promote these values. We hope that you will visit our website, and this ethos and our values will shine through in the transitional information provided.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours faithfully


D Waugh

Principal of Gosforth Junior High Academy
