Northern Saints Church of England Academy

At Northern Saints C of E Academy, we work as a team, to enable all our children, adults and families to flourish. We offer the Christian message of love, joy and the celebration of all humanity, without exception or exclusion. This is encapsulated by our school motto, “Together We Rise”.

The Northern Saints were brave men and women, who brought faith, opportunity and freedom to the people of Northern England in the 7th century. Their work was transformational in raising life chances within the communities in which they served. Today we continue as a school community, to remain outward looking, as we endeavour to make a positive contribution to society in the 21st century.
We are aspirational in outlook and strive to provide academic rigour within a well-rounded education. We achieve this through our curriculum, which is broad and balanced and promotes our pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development. Through this, we prepare our pupils well for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
