A shared vision for success

We’ve brought together the expertise of John Spence Community High School, Marden High School, Norham High School and Tyne Metropolitan College to create a unique school – college partnership that provides students from these and other institutions with a specialised sixth form, dedicated to A level teaching and preparation for university and working life.

In partnership

Queen Alexandra is a partnership of some great local schools and colleges – John Spence Community High School, Marden High School, Norham High School College and Tyne Metropolitan College. This unique partnership provides a dedicated Sixth Form College for these schools as well as others across the region. This means that the Sixth Form gains from the schools’ experience and can make informed decisions about how we can ensure students benefit once they’ve moved here. This is what our partner schools’ Headteachers have to say about Queen Alexandra...

"Our students will be able to learn in a college dedicated exclusively to their A Level studies, with expert teaching in a friendly and supportive environment. Queen Alex Sixth Form College is committed to giving students one to one support and careers guidance to ensure they get exactly what they need to succeed."
David Baldwin - Executive Headteacher at Norham High School
"The close relationship that Marden High School enjoys with Queen Alexandra Sixth Form College has been developed and nurtured over many years, allowing for an effective transition from GCSE to A level study in an outstanding learning environment. It is great to see Marden High School students benefiting from the relationship enjoyed by Marden High School and Queen Alexandra Sixth Form College, and I am delighted to see the success it brings, and will continue to bring, long into the future.”
Matt Snape – Headteacher of Marden High School
