Our Vision:

"To create a purposeful educational environment where children of all abilities can learn and thrive"

North View Academy was built in 2012. North View School then became an academy in 2014.

Over the past three years we have transformed the educational opportunities and outcomes for our pupils in the city of Sunderland beyond whose needs relate to Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties and Autistic Spectrum disorders. The improvement in academic performance has been driven by a talented and committed workforce, the hard work of our pupil's and support from parents and our Governing Body.


Our new buildings in St Lukes Road were designed in partnership with City of Sunderland and built by Robertsons PLC as our main contractor at a cost of 5.6m. The school opened in August 2014. The buildings reflect our education vision of creating a purposeful educational environment where children of all abilities can learn and thrive.


The academy is led by Gary Mellefont who has been with the school for sixteen years, the last eight as head teacher.


Our website is updated regularly to reflect the range of activities and opportunities at our school.


We welcome visitors and prospective parents to tour the academy during the working day.
