About the school

Sedgefield Community College

Would you like to progress your career in an academy judged by OFSTED as ‘outstanding’, an academy where both student achievement and attitudes to learning are amongst the best in the entire North East and Cumbria region? Would you also like to work in a fantastic, recently built academy, set in one of County Durham’s most scenic areas? If the answer to each of these questions is ‘yes’ then Sedgefield Community College could be right for you.


We particularly welcome applicants from those who will newly qualify in 2022 or are relatively new to the profession. A subject specialism of Physics is preferable but not essential to the right candidate for our school. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone wishing to commence and to progress their career in an outstanding and supportive Science faculty under the guidance of an outstanding Subject Leader.

If you are someone who has the ability to engage and enthuse students, coupled with the drive and commitment required to become a truly outstanding teacher, then we would like to hear from you.

Laidlaw Schools Trust is a growing multi academy trust in the North East of England, serving children and families in Sedgefield, the west of Newcastle and in Pennywell, Sunderland. We pride ourselves in being a progressive, inclusive trust that supports every child to develop their talents whatever they may be and to reach their academic potential. It is important that as a learning organisation we adapt and change to the needs of our pupils. We take care to value and develop all colleagues to make sure they can do their very best for children across the Trust’s schools. Our Academies also enjoy strong support from an experienced LST central team, based in Newcastle upon Tyne.
