Welcome from Director of School

It is an honour to welcome you to Consett Academy and to be able to share the success of our students with you. Whilst we strive to ensure that all students achieve their very best academically, we are convinced that it is crucial to offer students the opportunity to develop and grow into confident, resilient and exceptional young people.

In order to achieve this we aim for our students to develop moral integrity and become responsible global citizens who demonstrate tolerance and a strong sense of responsibility towards each other and to those beyond their immediate community.

The journey students embark upon at Consett Academy brings change, challenge and opportunity: the response to which goes a long way to determining the student’s quality of life upon leaving school. We strongly uphold that any success is due to the hard work and determination of students, staff and parents working collaboratively.

Consett Academy inspires excellence by its very nature, and we seek to fulfil the potential of all those involved in our unique and remarkable educational community.

Mrs R Somerville, Director of School & Curriculum
