In April 2014 Emmanuel was chosen by the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) to become a National Teaching School.

The Emmanuel Teaching School Alliance comprises Emmanuel College, The King’s Academy, Bede Academy and Newcastle University, in partnership with a growing number of schools in challenging circumstancesTogether we’re working to provide high quality school-led initial teacher training, contribute to the professional development of teachers at all stages of their career, and bring about sustained school improvement.

Emmanuel College was founded in Gateshead in 1990, and quickly established a national reputation as a result of a consistent Christian ethos, an emphasis on excellence of character, and outstanding academic results. Over the last quarter of a century Emmanuel’s distinctive approach to education has contributed to the shaping of national policy, and to the birth of the Emmanuel Schools Foundation (ESF) in which Emmanuel (Gateshead) is joined by The King’s Academy in Middlesbrough, Trinity Academy in Doncaster and Bede Academy in Blyth.

Jonathan Winch, Principal at Emmanuel College and National Leader of Education, said: “The Emmanuel Schools Foundation schools are remarkable places to work and to train. We’re grateful that our students have benefited from exceptionally gifted leaders and teachers, and we want to make their expertise available more widely, sharing ideas with fellow-professionals and working together to help more children have the best start in life.”
