Berwick Academy

Meet our Headteacher

As Headteacher, can I warmly welcome you to the Berwick Academy website! It is an honour and privilege to represent the student, staff, and trustees of Berwick-upon-Tweed. We are a small but caring community who are constantly working to improve our skills, knowledge, understanding and values. Friendship, Learning, Respect is our motto. These are not just words on a wall. Students develop strong friendships with each other, supporting each other as they grow and flourish. Learning is at the heart of everything we do. Learning is for life, and we want to develop a growth mindset so that our students become successful so that they serve and support their family, friends and community.  Respect is earned. However, we expect everyone to respect each other, and be polite and considerate. Only over time, with positive behaviours will profound respect flourish.


I hope that you find what you are looking for on our website. If you are interested in finding out more about us, as a place of study, work, research, community or business involvement, please get in touch. Likewise, if you feel we can make improvements to our processes or site, or have any other feedback, please let us know. If you would like to arrange a visit, we would be happy to open our doors to you. You’ll discover that the school is not just the buildings, but the values of a learning community.
