Come to work in a thriving community. Callerton Academy is a growing secondary school committed to providing the very best education for pupils from Year 7 to Year 11. We are one of two new schools within Gosforth Group Multi Academy Trust. The school opened in September 2021 in a newly reconfigured school building in Newcastle’s Graingertown. We will move to a brand new 1200 capacity school building in 2023 to the north west of the city – close to Westerhope, Kingston Park and Newcastle International Airport.

This is a wonderful opportunity for a dynamic, creative leader to shape the future of our growing new school. 

You will be Vice Principal responsible for Curriculum and Teaching and Learning. At Callerton Academy we are developing an exciting and tailored curriculum for our young people and whole school community. Our curriculum is then delivered through exceptional teaching and learning supported by a tailored programme of CPD, supported throughout the whole MAT.

This is a unique chance for someone looking to develop in the upper stages of senior leadership within a highly successful and supportive school and multi academy trust, backed up by excellent resources and facilities.

We are looking to appoint a brilliant teacher who is passionate, pro-active and innovative. You will have taught across key stage 3 and 4.
