Admission to River Tyne Academy Gateshead is primarily through the Gateshead Education Inclusion Panel, following permanent exclusion from a mainstream Gateshead school or through medical/psychological assessment. It may be possible for schools to commission work directly from the academy – please contact the Headteacher to discuss this.
Young people at the academy fall into one of four categories:
- Their education has been interrupted by long term health issues
- They are not in school because of disaffection/permanent exclusion
- They have been diagnosed as unable to attend a mainstream school by educational or clinical psychologist
