Full time, Temporary for 1 Year

Salary negotiable depending on experience


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

Excelsior is one of six schools in 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 meaning children can join us from age 3 and leave us aged 19.

Our roles 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.

If you think you have the talent and drive to transform the life chances of our pupils, then we would love to hear from you. Subject knowledge is essential, but so is the enthusiasm and creativity to spark our pupils’ imaginations.

The Trust is interested in applications from suitably qualified and experienced candidates as well as NQT’s.

To apply, please complete an application form and return it to; ;  or to Vicky Kirtley (HR Administrator) at the main school address.


Closing date for applications is 3pm on Tuesday 12th June 2018

Interview date:  Thursday 14th June 2018
