Dear Sir/Madam

We, Northern Education Trust (the "Trust"), have recently launched our new SchoolHire booking system. As an existing customer, you are being given notice so that you can ensure that your regular bookings are made.

As part of the change in our booking system, all community lettings across the Trust are being managed centrally by North Shore Academy's community team. All queries should be directed to Russell Baxter and his team on

01642 604 950.

Each school has their own website where their facilities can be booked online:

Venue Town Website

Blyth Northumberland

On your first visit to one of the above links, you will need to create a free user account and then make your booking request.

When you make the booking request, you will see the standard charge for the facility that you are trying to hire. When you make your booking you will need to put in credit card or debit card details. This card will only be charged once we confirm your booking.

If there are any discounts to be applied, your card will be charged subject to the applicable discount. You will then receive a receipt of the booking confirmation via email.

Any changes to your booking must then be made through the SchoolHire booking site.

SchoolHire have created a screencast on 'How to make a booking' which you may want to watch prior to making your initial booking through the new system, which can be found at:

Please note that you will not be able to use any facilities at any of our schools unless a booking request has been accepted via the SchoolHire booking system.

We are confident though that once you have gotten used to the new system, you will find it easy to use and it will enhance your experience in terms of renting facilities in the Trust's schools.

Kind regards,

Russell Baxter
