Welcome to Extol Academy Trust



Extol Academy is an ambitious and collaborative Trust based in the North East of England formed in 2013. They are a partnership of schools driven by their social and civic responsibility; ensuring that all pupils, regardless of background or where they go to school, have equal access to high-quality education. 


Their aims are reflected in their continual commitment to the ‘levelling up’ agenda within education and the North East communities that they serve.




Extol places significant importance on the development and retention of high-performing staff. Their mission is: 


  • For every teacher in every classroom to be as good as they can in what they teach and how they teach
  • To mobilise for every teacher the best evidence from research
  • Provide the best professional development for all staff




Each academy within the Trust should be an outstanding school, “a stand out school”, developing young people who achieve highly and are well-rounded ambitious individuals, equipped in all respects for a modern, diverse society.
