The Drive Community Primary School

Although the majority of our students join us from our partner primary schools, we are always pleased to welcome students from other primary schools in Gateshead, the UK, and even other parts of the world.  

Parents and carers of children in all primary schools are welcome to apply for places. For more information and to apply for a place online click here.

We have a well-established primary liaison programme whereby all pupils in our partner primary schools' benefit from learning experiences here.  As well as specialist lessons, pupils in our partner primary schools also receive teaching visits from Heworth Staff in their own schools.

Our wide and varied programme introduces primary pupils to Heworth and enhances a safe and successful transition process for those many pupils who join us for their secondary education.

Primary Liaison Transition Team

“Our aim is for pupils to experience a successful transition from key stage 2 to key stage 3”

All our teachers share this aim but our Liaison Team, in particular, work in collaboration with primary staff and parents to ensure we achieve our aim.  We pride ourselves in the care shown to pupils and this care begins even before a child joins us.  This means we get to know pupils (and many parents) before they become part of the Heworth family so, when they do join us they feel happy, confident, and ready to learn. Parents can be assured of a close working relationship between home and school.

Currently, our focus is to engage with Y6 pupils and parents considering Heworth Grange for September.  Please contact us should you wish to discuss any aspect of your child's future at Heworth.

A dedicated team of staff are already working on a range of primary liaison events for the year ahead, starting this term. Watch this space.
