Excelsior Academy is unique, and is Newcastle's newest secondary school. Our schools within our school model mean we are able to provide our pupils with more attention and greater care, and this shows in our academic results.
Opened in 2008, Excelsior has become Newcastle's most improved secondary school since 2009 and this year's exam results have been our best ever.
We prepare our pupils for life after education through our specialism in business enterprise and we are able to offer fantastic education and learning experiences because of the generous support of our sponsor. Examples of his investment in the education of our children includes a £350 contribution to each pupil towards extracurricular activities in addition to any national funding they're entitled to, the opportunity of a full scholarship to attend 6th form at Merchiston School in Edinburgh, and the opportunity of a generous bursary to Newcastle or Leeds Universities. All benefits provided by our sponsor are exclusive to Excelsior pupils and are in addition to other funding available to them. In April 2012 Excelsior students became the first in the country to register their own business, Excel 5.
Following a consultation process, from Sept 2013 we are delighted to be extending our provision to include Excelsior Primary and welcome applications from parents whose children will be entering Reception or Year One in September 2013.
