from our Headteacher Paul Sampson
We are really keen to share with you the many reasons why we believe we are the School of First Choice in Newcastle and would like to welcome you to our Careers Opportunities site.
Following our most recent Ofsted visit on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 May 2014, I am very pleased to report that Ofsted recognised all the good progress that we have made since the last inspection and judged the school as having good Leadership and Management, with good Behaviour.
The school has the following strengths:
- Teaching is improving and there are examples of outstanding teaching in the main school and in the sixth form.
- The proportion of students who gain five GCSE grades A*- C, including English and Mathematics, has increased steadily since the last inspection.
- The dedicated Head Teacher, supported well by his talented senior team, has put in place well thought out strategies to further raise achievement. Consequently, this is an improving school.
- Governors know the school well and hold the leadership to account with rigour.
If you share our passion to deliver, succeed and grow and would like a career with us at Wallbottle Campus, Newcastle, we would welcome your application to join and develop our school community.
All the best
Paul Sampson, Headteacher
