Who we are

The Northumberland Church of England Academy Trust (NCEAT) is a multi-Academy Trust based in South East Northumberland. 

Comprising four schools spanning primary, secondary, further education and special educational needs, the Trust aims to provide an inclusive and diverse learning environment, underpinned by Christian values, where students are enabled and encouraged to

‘Let their light shine’ (Matthew 5:16).

Our Vision and Values

At the NCEA Trust, we believe in an education system that prepares students for success. 

Our ultimate goal is to develop well-rounded, highly capable individuals who, with the support of our talented teaching and support staff, can complete their learning journey with the skills and confidence that they need to take their next steps into higher education or employment. 

To us, school is about more than what you learn in a classroom, it’s about developing skills for life in a forward-thinking environment which promotes a culture of aspiration and success, alongside inclusion and a sense of social responsibility.

The Trust’s Christian ethos is fundamental to all aspects of school life – where all are valued equally and included. All respected, nurtured, encouraged and enabled to achieve fullness of life (John 10:10).

Our Christian values are embedded across the Trust in the form of our LIGHT values...

We care for each other and we help others do well. We have a concern for justice and for the vulnerable, especially those in need.
[Mark 12:31, John 3:16, John 13:24-35, Romans 12:10, 1 Corinthians 13, 1 John 4:11]
