West Denton Primary School (WDPS) is located in the Outer West of Newcastle Upon Tyne. WDPS caters for children aged four to eleven years in the primary year groups and there is also a 52 place nursery.  WDPS is at the heart of the community and we feel it is a very special place for all to learn and develop their potential.


WDPS students are well aware of the importance of gaining strong numeracy skills for succeeding in education and in the world of work.

Our children are motivated to learn other modern foreign languages. All Key Stage 2 children benefit from a weekly Spanish lesson.

We believe we give our children a strong start in life as we are an innovative community who have developed a range of programmes that are unique for a school.


We deliver the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) from Year 1 to Year 6 as we want our children to benefit from a combination of academic, personal and international learning. At WDPS we have created the WDPS Raising Aspirations Programme (RAP) as we believe that all children need to have positive adult role models in order to help them to achieve their full potential. This is why we invite inspirational speakers in to school to help our older children understand that hard work, perseverance and following your dreams can open up maximum choices in all aspects of life.
