The Trustees are seeking to appoint an Assistant Principal with responsibility for Vulnerable Learners: SEND (Designated SENCO), EAL and DSL for Excelsior Academy from 1 September.

Excelsior Academy is an innovative academy; it works on a ‘schools within a school’ model. Excelsior is part of the Laidlaw Schools Trust, created to give children from socially and economically challenged areas the best possible education and start in life. In September 2013, we became Newcastle’s first ‘all through’ Academy educating children from age 3 to 19 years old.
