We continually monitor changes in the weather to judge whether our campuses and/or travel arrangements could be affected.  Closure to the Academy, or an individual campus, will be made only as a last resort.

You should assume that the Academy is open unless you have seen a closure notice which will be on this website, and Tweeted by our main NCEA twitter feeds.  We will try to update this notice by 7.15am each morning.

It is with regret that the Beauty and the Beast rehearsal scheduled for this Sunday 4th March has been cancelled due to the severity of the weather.

Children can practice at home by clicking on the link below. There are practise tracks and a copy of the script. If this does not work, students can practise singing their parts along to YouTube videos. Please thank your child for all their hard work so far – there are a lot of lines to learn and they have all done very well!


Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Kind Regards
Mrs R Glanville
Head of Music Development

Heartwarming Thanks

At the Academy, we love to hear about successful students:

Dear Mr Day

My daughter attends The Northumberland Church Of England Academy and she is a member of the NCEA Cadet Force and cadet band within the school.  She marched in the parades over the weekend as the bands bass drummer and she is currently learning the side drum too.

I was privileged to be able to attend the remembrance parades at the weekend and the lovely service the cadets performed at St Mary’s Church in Morpeth.  Proud does not even come close to how I felt seeing the cadets march together and seeing the private service they held at St Mary’s Church where the pipers played and all the cadets lit candles for all the lost Polish/ Belgium soldiers.

My daughter is a changed young lady since joining the cadets.   She is a lot more focused now and her school work and her recent school report was outstanding and I believe that this is down to the help, support and inspiration she gains from the cadets.  She has been on a lot of weekends away with the cadet force and has learned a lot of new skills. She is currently working towards the silver award for her Duke of Edinburgh award.

This email is mainly to thank the school and cadets for giving our children this fantastic opportunity.

Kind Regards

Year 10 Parent
