Supporting Christian homeschooling families in the Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead and Durham area


Serving the Christian Family

The primary responsibility for the training and educating of children in the fear and instruction of God has been entrusted to their parents (Ephesians 6:4; Deuteronomy 6:4-7). This is both a great privilege and a daunting responsibility. All teaching at Newcastle Christian School aims to assist parents in this role. The part-time nature of the school week allows a significant amount of time for parents to work at home with their children, either on the suggested home assignments, or on their own educational activities. NCS parents are home-educators.


The school is funded by fees and private donations from individuals and trusts. Tuition fees for 2019-2020 are £2500 per child, with a family discount of £500 for a second child and £1000 for further children. Parents may apply for means-testing: £500 per child deducted from fees for a family earning less than £25,000; £1000 deducted (and £1500 for subsequent children) where earning is below £20,000; £1500 deducted (and the same for subsequent children) where earning is below £15,000; £2000 per child deducted where earning is less than £10,000. An additional £500 or £1000 per child would be requested of families earning more than £50,000 or £60,000 respectively. A limited number of significant bursaries are available for children of ministers. A modest materials fee of £50 is also charged. A deposit of £500, subtracted from the cost of fees, will be required to reserve a child’s place.

As pupil numbers are not yet large enough for the school to support itself, the donations of generous supporters play a crucial role. Any financial help is appreciated, however small, and can be sent to The NCS Board, The Firs, 1a Front Street, Whickham, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE16 4HL.

Applications are welcome from parents who are members (or committed attenders when membership is not offered) in good standing at a local evangelical church.

Parents who wish to enrol their children for the academic year 2020-2021 are asked to inform the school no later than Friday 24th April 2020.

Application forms are available on request by using the contact form below. Prospective parents will be interviewed by the Board.

"NCS provides a warm and supportive framework that encourages not only academic progress but also moral and spiritual development. NCS is helping our boys develop strong roots that we pray will serve them well throughout their lives."
