James Calvert Spence College is situated in a beautiful coastal town in Northumberland and is a 9-19 through school, catering for students from Year 5 to Year 13.  We are within easy reach of urban Tyneside and beyond, with many staff travelling with ease in the opposite direction to the rush hour traffic from Newcastle, Gateshead and Sunderland areas.

  • Have proven outstanding leadership skills in primary or secondary phases
  • Be a qualified SENDCo, or willing to undertake the appropriate training
  • Be a strong classroom practitioner, keen to develop your own skills further
  • Be a positive role model
  • Have high expectations of yourself and others
