I am privileged to be the Principal of Excelsior Academy, the first All Through School in Newcastle, offering education to pupils from 3 to 19 years of age.  Our ethos is clear; to be a community school which creates and builds aspiration through high quality care and education.  We want all of our learners to flourish, enjoy school and be prepared to progress to exciting and wide ranging future opportunities.

Excelsior is comprised of three phases: Rainbird Primary, Secondary and Excelsior College Sixth Form.  We are fortunate to have excellent accommodation and facilities at Excelsior catering for the needs of all age groups and needs.  However, a school is not the building but the people.  We are equally fortunate to have a dedicated and skilful teaching and support staff who will work tirelessly to build positive and meaningful relationships with young people, families and the community in order to work together to fulfil our ethos.  We value learning in and out of the classroom and want to provide the Excelsior young people with enrichment opportunities so that they develop their skills, knowledge and potential.  We want to do our very best so that the pupils see themselves as responsible and compassionate global citizens.

Thank you for visiting the website and for your interest in the Academy.  If you would like to find out more then please get in touch.  We look forward to welcoming you to experience school life and the exciting opportunities that our pupils enjoy.

Mr J Andriot
