About Churchill Community College

Churchill Community College is a dynamic, exciting place to work with many opportunities available for staff and students. We have been designated a National Teaching and Support School by the DfE and we also lead the ‘The Great North Maths Hub’ for the North of England alongside the North Tyneside Learning Trust. Our work as a teaching school has developed rapidly this year and we have recently been awarded a bid of over £400,000 to support the development of oracy skills in schools north of the Tyne. We have provided a very significant level of support at leadership team level and in teaching and learning to another local secondary school at the request of the local authority. We are one of two lead schools for the Northumbria University PE SCITT and work closely on ITT provision with Durham University, Sunderland and Newcastle too; as well as supporting Schools Direct provision. This work is all evidence of our continuing commitment to high quality professional development for those who work in education. Our most recent OfSTED Inspection in May 2014 graded us as Outstanding across all areas. We are very proud of the outcome of the report because it reflects the years of hard work and commitment by our staff to build the quality of provision it evidences.
