Southmoor Academy is a very successful and rapidly expanding 11-18 academy. Despite deprivation exceeding national levels, the school is regularly one of the top schools in Sunderland on a wide range of indicators.
2018 GCSE results have risen 8% for both L5+ E&M and L4+ E&M to 45% and 66% respectively. Attainment 8 has risen 2.8 points to 50.1 and both maths and English exceed national attainment averages despite an FSM level of 37%. Early projections of Progress 8 show it to be around +0.2. We can and will achieve even more!
2018 A level results are the highest in the area at 78% A*-C and early Value Added projections at +0.22 will place the school in at least the top 20% nationally once again.
We are a forward thinking progressive school. We have become the North East Oxnet Hub which promotes Russell Group applications (in 2018 one third of our pupils went to Russell Group universities). Southmoor MAT consists of two secondary schools. Being part of a larger organisation really gives us the ability to draw in special talent and offer many more opportunities to those who join us.

A very popular choice at Southmoor the uptake for Mathematics at A ‘Level is very strong.

It is a very supportive team who collaborate regularly to ensure our standards remain high. We look forward to welcoming a new colleague.
