Norham High School is an 11 – 16 comprehensive school serving part of the South East locality of North Shields.

At Norham High School, our motto is ‘Pride, Determination, Strength’.

We believe that every child has the right to an excellent quality of education and an enriching experience - it is our role to support them, both academically and pastorally, so that they grow to be the very best version of themselves. At the heart of our school are our family values and collegiate approach; we support each other and invest in pupils and staff alike, providing a wealth of opportunities to all.

The school has invested significantly in all aspects of education and welfare; this is at the heart of our ethos and recognised by our community and stakeholders who support all that we do.

This includes Chromebooks and equipment for all pupils, refurbished classrooms / social areas, new technology for classrooms, and a unique blend of welfare support that promotes a positive work-life balance - colleagues' efforts are genuinely recognised and rewarded.

Behaviour is strong, with exceptional conduct around the school as pupils and staff greet visitors - and each other - with kindness and respect. Pupils take pride in their appearance and are smart, professional, and fully equipped for their learning. Pupils also recognise the efforts of staff and appreciate all we do. In a recent inspection, a pupil told an Ofsted inspector “we are like a massive family”.

We are looking for a candidate with the commitment and determination to be all they can be for our pupils. We have a number of pupils at our school with SEND, lower prior attainment, and lower standards of literacy. While these barriers exist, we help pupils to overcome them; we are committed to improving life chances and we have a strong sense of social justice. In joining us, you too will enjoy both the challenge and reward of serving our community - all children deserve the best and we really are making a difference to children’s lives.
