About the school

Excelsior Academy

Excelsior Academy is part of the Laidlaw Schools Trust, created to give children from socially and economically challenged areas the best possible education and start in life. In September 2013, we became Newcastle’s first all-through Academy educating children from age 3 to 19 years old.

Working at Excelsior will challenge you but the rewards are huge. Successful candidates will play an important role in our continuous drive for further improvement and will have the potential to work in Key Stages three, four and five.

We welcome applications from those who are relatively new to the profession and those who will newly qualify in 2022.

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

The successful candidate will join a successful MAT where all Academies support each other to the benefit of our pupils and their families. Our Academies also enjoy strong support from an experienced LST central team, based in Newcastle upon Tyne.
