About The Hub

St. Michael’s English Hub is one of 34 schools across England appointed by the DfE to take a leading role in supporting schools to improve the teaching of early language, reading and phonics. The school places a high profile on early reading through a strong commitment to systematic, synthetic phonics. Ultimately, if a child can read, they can access the curriculum, develop a strong vocabulary and a love of reading.

We offer support to local schools, academies and free schools to improve the teaching of phonics, early language and reading in Reception and Year 1.

We are able to offer support in to schools in the below areas:

  • Durham
  • Gateshead
  • Newcastle
  • North Tyneside
  • South Tyneside
  • Tyne and Wear
  • Northumberland

We have the following social media accounts so people can keep up to date with all the latest information.
