The Trustees are seeking to appoint three Curriculum Support Workers for Excelsior Academy with effect from September 2018.

Excelsior Academy is an innovative academy in its tenth year. It works on a ‘schools within a school’ model. Excelsior 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.

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.
