Develop talent and potential. 

Across Primary. 

Across Secondary. 

Across a great team.

This isn’t just another leadership challenge because Bede Academy isn’t just another school. An all-through academy based across separate Primary and Secondary sites, this role will give you the opportunity to focus on Primary whilst developing talent across the Primary and Secondary phases – and profoundly impacting on the lives of everybody who studies and works here.

We have a strong Christian ethos and our motto is “Veritas vos liberabit” (“The truth will set you free”). We think that says a lot about us. Our vision of education is based around honour, humility, compassion, integrity and accountability and our results speak for themselves: formed as recently as 2009, we’ve already been rated Good by Ofsted and we’re on our way to Outstanding.

We’ll look to you to challenge and improve the way we think and work, as you implement new initiatives in teaching and learning, INSET and CPD. In particular, you’ll play a major part in the recruitment and retention of teachers: ensuring we have the talent we need to give students the education they deserve. If you have the ambition and passion we require, you can expect close involvement with the Principal to make things happen and make continuous improvement central to everything we do.

An accomplished teacher and seasoned manager, you’re ready for broader responsibility, greater autonomy and an enviable lifestyle in beautiful Northumberland, and we're ready to hear from you.
