Message from the Principal…

Thank you for choosing Newcastle Academy as the right secondary school for your child. Whilst we appreciate that transition this year is very different to how we would normally want to introduce your child to Newcastle Academy, we want to assure you that we will continue to make every effort to ensure you that they will feel happy and comfortable with us in the new academic year. Working together we will give your child the very best chance of succeeding both academically and in the wide variety of vocational, sporting, arts, and numerous other opportunities we offer as an academy.

We believe that every student, regardless of background or personal circumstance can achieve. We also know that strong achievement is grounded in the best teaching and learning experience which ensures that all students will aspire to be the best that they can be. It is our aim that the hard work that students put into their studies and examinations, supported by the hard work of staff, secures good progress and extends the choices our students have in their futures.

We believe in high standards of behaviour which supports student success. Our students have varied needs, and ensuring a consistency of approach means that every student can receive the individual support that they require to make progress. In doing this we work in partnership with parents and carers at all stages so that no child is left behind.  Our offer supports our students to develop into confident, responsible and successful young people.

I am extremely proud to be the Principal of Newcastle Academy and I look forward to meeting your child on our induction days and to working with you in the coming years to ensure success for all our students.

Mr Jamie Henshaw BA(Hons), PGCE, NPQH

Principal
