Discovery School closure: £9m flagship science school forced to shut just four years after opening

Newcastle City Council leader Nick Forbes called the school's failure a "damning indictment" of Government's "high risk experiment" in academisation

A litany of problems with teaching, safeguarding and pupil recruitment have forced a flagship free school to close down.

About time something was done with it... but it at least helped retained a bit of scale around there. There's a very sudden drop in 'city centre' feel in terms of mass etc, and I'd imagine it'll be a dormant plot for ages until some mediocre kitchen showroom or 2 storey college admin building is plonked there...

Going past the College site over the Redheugh bridge the other, they have done a good job renovating the main college block (sorry I don't know the name of it), but the rest of that area is a looking a right dump at the moment. Does anyone know if they have any plans for the site around the Redheugh bridge?

Photographs taken yesterday, 9th August 2018 - I assume the gap in the scaffolding at the rear elevation will be opened up to taken out the demolition spoils.

It looks very cool, as for me. I wish we had more modern buildings. By the way, maybe someone will be interested to read a dissertation https://paperleaf.ca/write-my-dissertation/ on the construction of modern buildings. There are very interesting aspects covered, I liked it.

Passed by on 30th November 2018 and noticed that the scaffolding had been much reduced.

Windows not boarded up around the building with noticeable incorporated ventilation.

So doesn't look like demolition is imminent.
