Coquet Park First School initially  opened in 1903 on Coquet Avenue, Whitley Bay and at the time it was called Park School.  

On the  5th November 2003, after 100 successful years,  the school moved into newly built premises at The Links, Whitley Bay.

At Coquet Park First School we aim to promote a safe and secure environment in which children learn to be members of a caring community. We believe that children are able to achieve their potential in a happy and supportive environment, whilst enjoying their time at our school. 

Our desirable, picturesque, coastal location enables us to fully utilise the extensive, extended opportunities within our community. The children enjoy many interesting and varied outdoor learning adventures  including:  healthy walks, ‘Hit the Surf’ lessons, our whole school annual 'Beach Day' and of course visits to St Mary’s Lighthouse.  On site, we have developed a small woodland area and an enclosed pond to the rear of the school, which the children thoroughly enjoy using.  The woodland area has been developed into a  Forest School with an adjacent area where the children grow vegetables through the allotment club.
