At West Jesmond Primary School we are extremely lucky to have a wonderful allotment and you are welcome to use it!
It's a fantastic resource to have and is particularly nice for families who don't have gardens of their own and want their children to know where food comes from. There's also a pond full of frogs and newts, which is always a big attraction!
Fancy a spot of gardening?
Please get in touch any time you fancy getting outside for a spot of gardening. It's good for the soul and will be much-appreciated!
School Allotment Days
We also have Allotment Days once a term, when as many people as possible are asked to come and help at the school allotment on a weekend. It's great fun, there's a lovely atmosphere and you're welcome to bring a picnic or food to BBQ and stay for as long as you like. There are toilets on site and a kettle if you fancy a cuppa.
Are you interested in doing a little bit more...?

The entrance to the school allotment is at the junction of Highbury and Mildmay Road in Jesmond. The postcode, if you're sat navving, is NE2 3EA. To reach our allotment, go through the entrance and walk straight ahead until you see a willow archway.
