Prosper Learning Trust was established in January 2018 with Newcastle Bridges School and Mary Astell Academy with Thomas Bewick School joining in 2019. We are striving to further build collaboration across the schools and grow as a Multi Academy Trust, whilst continuing to strengthen our relationships with schools outside the MAT for the benefit of our pupils.

Thomas Bewick is a successful specialist school for pupils with autism aged between three and nineteen years. Ofsted reported the school as being ‘good’ in April 2016.

Harry Watts Academy is a new special free school in Sunderland (due to open September 2020) for pupils with autism aged between five and sixteen years. Please note that this post will be located within Thomas Bewick School until the new build is ready for occupation.
