Sage Gateshead Partnership Schools

Sage Gateshead Partnership Schools are schools with whom Sage Gateshead has a relationship exploring best music education practice. Every academic year, we have the capacity to work with a select number of schools on activity, that is designed collaboratively, dependent on the needs of the school and areas of music education, which excite us most. We hope the outcomes of this work will support music learning in all schools in our region and further shape the North East as being a hotbed of young musical talent.
