Proposed changes to primary phase schools in Great Yarmouth

Closed 18 Jul 2014

Opened 9 Jun 2014


We have been talking with governors and headteachers in Great Yarmouth about a new way of organising these schools:

  • Alderman Swindell Infant
  • Northgate Infant
  • St George’s Infant
  • North Denes Junior
  • St Nicolas Priory CE VA Junior
  • Gt Yarmouth Primary Academy.


Our plan would mean that children would no longer have to move to a new school at the age of 7. Once a child has been given a reception place at any of the schools above, they would stay at the school until the age of 11, when they transfer to high school.

You can read more information about our plans by downloading our flyer below. We have also arranged some meetings where you can hear more about our plans and find out what the changes would mean for your child:

  • Alderman Swindell Infant, 25 June 2014 from 6.30pm
  • Northgate Infant 17, June 2014 from 3.30pm
  • St George’s Infant, 8 July 2014 from 3pm
  • North Denes Junior, 23 June 2014 from 3.30pm
  • St Nicolas Priory CE VA Junior, 7July 2014 from 3.30pm.


The statutory consultation period closed on 28 November 2014.  Below is the Determination Notice, signed by the DCS, approving the proposal to create five all-through primary schools in Great Yarmouth from 1 September 2015.
