Enrichment: we believe in developing well rounded education where young people are able to develop their talents, explore new opportunities and nurture a range of skills outside the normal curriculum in sport, drama and STEM activities

Mutual respect: we encourage our students to understand and appreciate the viewpoints of others with moral and ethical issues, promoting tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs

Pride: we take pride in what we do and accept nothing but excellence from ourselves

Teamwork:  we understand that collaboration is crucial. We understand that collaborating with our primary schools can enhance the educational provision we offer and are proud to have established the Teesdale Primary Sports Cluster which took effect in Sept 16. Through working with our primary colleagues we are even better placed to nurture students’ progress.
