The Trustees are seeking to appoint a Phase Lead for Early Years and Key Stage 1 for Excelsior Academy to start 1 January 2020.
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.
