Working at Bede Academy

Welcome from the Principal

Bede Academy opened in September 2009 as the fourth school in Emmanuel Schools Foundation’s family. The £40 million state-of-the-art facility is one of the first All Age Academies (3-18 years) in Northumberland. There has been an overwhelming response from parents and students who are eager to make the most of the learning opportunities and facilities that Bede Academy has to offer. As an Academy with a distinctive Christian ethos, all students are expected to achieve their personal best in academic attainment, character development and behaviour.

Bede Academy provides the opportunity for Primary and Secondary colleagues to collaborate and develop professionally. In addition, exceptional CPD and career development opportunities are available.
