The Deputy Headteacher will play a crucial role in the strategic and operational leadership of the school.

Chantry is a large middle school with over 550 students from Years 5 to 8, situated in the town of Morpeth in Northumberland.

We pride ourselves on being a fully inclusive and truly comprehensive school with high standards.  Our purpose is to provide experiences to inspire, motivate and meet the needs of all learners.  We encourage a lifelong love of learning to enable all to develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge to become accomplished students. 

The school is part of the Three Rivers Learning Trust.  Whilst the schools within the Trust are separate with their own unique identity, there is one engaged and supportive Board of Trustees, to whom each school reports.

The Learning Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
