Bede Academy is a fully inclusive mainstream 3-18 Academy within Blyth, Northumberland based on two sites.  Primary aged students from 3-11 are based at Bede South and secondary aged students from 11-18 are based at Bede North.  The Academy opened in September 2009. 

Bede Academy values all students.  All students are treated equally and have a right to an education which enables them to develop fully their personal, social and intellectual potential.   There is also a strong commitment to high achievement and aspirations for all students.  Within Bede Academy all students are provided with a high quality broad and balanced education appropriate to their individual needs. To reflect this, specialist provision is known as ‘Individualised Learning.’
