Partners

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
"With a smooth transition from school to sixth form, Queen Alexandra is a natural progression for our students. The top quality learning experience will help them to progress further into higher education, vocational studies, or an exciting career."
Joan Bloomfield - Headteacher of Marden High School
"The school’s partnership with Queen Alex means our students begin college life in a confident way, ready to enjoy their studies, to succeed and to take full advantage of all the special facilities available like the North East Sports Academy."
Jim Stephenson - Headteacher of John Spence Community High School
"This is a unique partnership for the sixth form students of North Tyneside. We’re bringing together three successful schools and a celebrated college to offer an excellent learning experience. Queen Alexandra will provide the perfect steppingstone to university or a great career."
