The New North Academy was formed from the merger of two schools in 2004. We moved into our new building, which enjoys state of the art facilities, at Easter 2007.
We have recently re-focused our vision for where our school can go. As a result, this is a really exciting time to be part of our school’s on-going development and allows potential candidates to share with us their own areas of particular strength. There may well be opportunities to utilise your areas of excellence across our school.
Ofsted judged us to be ‘good’ in September 2016.
