carmel college A Catholic Academy Ofsted

Welcome to Carmel College…    News…

Message From Maura Regan, Principal, Carmel College:

The College was the first Catholic school in Hexham and Newcastle to become an Academy and on 1st March 2013 it was the first Diocesan school to become a Multi Academy Trust and is known as the Carmel Education Trust.

Carmel College became an Academy on 1 November 2011.  The College is one of the top performing schools in the country at both GCSE and 'A' level.  It has a proud record of excellence in areas of sport, music and the Arts.

The College values the excellent support it receives from parents and carers.  We have a team of outstanding staff who consistently encourage their students to be the best they can be and ensure that children leave with more than just outstanding examination results.

Our aim is to provide a community that is characterised by joyous corridors and purposeful classrooms, where students and staff are valued and respected as unique individuals and where all are able to grow and strive to "act justly love tenderly and walk humbly…" (Micah 6) in pursuit of the common good.
