About The Blyth Academy

Welcome from the Principal

I am delighted to offer you a warm welcome to Northern Education Trust, The Blyth Academy.

As one of the most improved schools in Northumberland 2018, I am thrilled to say that this is only the start of the regeneration of our Academy; it is a fantastic time to be part of our community. At The Blyth Academy, we place students at the centre of everything we do, we are unashamedly focused on the educational outcomes of our students and deem that our students deserve to achieve the very best grades that they are capable of.

“We constantly focus on standards as we understand outcomes are paramount. Our decision making is driven entirely by what is best for children. By doing this we enhance the life chances of the children and young people in our care.” Northern Education Vision

English & Mathematics are the cornerstones of our curriculum model as we believe attaining a strong pass in these subjects will open up our students’ life chances, giving them the opportunity to access a variety of post-16 opportunities. However, our curriculum does not stop there, our students will be taught more than just course content; we will ensure students develop the skills needed to become an independent, lifelong learner. We will give them every opportunity to succeed in a huge variety of activities in and out of the classroom, including cultural events, sporting activities and community projects.

It is important to us that our students are happy, confident learners. Our Academy is justly known for the high quality pastoral care that sits at the heart of our pursuit of excellence and guides every aspect of Academy life. This is the result of a stable, dedicated and highly effective team of staff ensuring that pupils have the support they need throughout their school life.

Choosing a school for your son or daughter can be amongst the most difficult decisions a parent has to make. As an outward facing Academy we welcome visitors, please get in touch if you would like to see the Academy in action. I look forward to showing our achievements so far and the future we hold.
