An application to establish a new co-educational Church of England Primary School in the Stockton-on-Tees area will be submitted to the Department for Education in the spring 2018. We are waiting for new information to be published by the Department about the application process and timescales.

The school is being proposed by 1Excellence Multi Academy Trust to help meet the growing need for additional high quality primary places in the Stockton-on-Tees area and also to give families additional choice of a high quality education with Christian values and strong pastoral care for their children.

You can help make this happen! The plans for St Thomas’ Church of England Academy will only become a reality with the support of the community. In our application to the Department for Education, we need to demonstrate the level of support for the school, particularly of parents and carers with children aged under 5.

If you are a parent of a child for whom you would consider St Thomas’ Church of England Academy, please register your support by completing the form below.

If you do not have a child starting primary school but support this proposed school, please email us at

Thank you – your support will help make our vision for St Thomas’ Church of England Academy a reality.
