Sedgefield Community College is a thriving and happy learning community where expectations and standards are exceptionally high.
Sedgefield Community College is a school where our highly skilled staff body works tirelessly each day to ensure all of our exceptional students can reach their full potential. At times, this involves raising the aspirations of our children and helping them to realise that they have a capacity for excellence that they may not themselves fully appreciate. Our vision statement is summed up by the phrase ‘Achieve @ Sedgefield’ and we know that through the partnership between school and home, we can make this vision a reality.
We do have very high standards for all of our students at SCC. These high standards permeate all aspects of school whether it be attendance, behaviour, uniform, positive manners or effort and application in lessons. We understand that we must maintain these standards for all, but appreciate that it is also our role to provide the additional support that is sometimes necessary, in order for this to happen. Children who are happy, supported and excited by learning are best placed to thrive and a strong partnership between home and school is crucial here.
Our aim is that all students should leave the school as highly qualified, confident and articulate young adults. During their time at our school, we want our students to develop the wider skills and personal qualities that are necessary to achieve their dreams in the future. We want to make sure that our young people are fully prepared to take their place as global citizens in the modern, technological world.
We have created a curriculum for our students that it broad, ambitious and supplemented by a wide range of extra-curricular activities. An integral element of this curriculum is our approach to Design Technology and Engineering that we recognise are of vital importance in achieving our goals for our students. Students are able to use state-of-the-art technology to support their learning in these subjects and this includes Industrial standard CAD, CNC Route, laser cutters and a range of 3D printers. Using this equipment with sophistication, our students are able to produce pieces of an exceptional standard. Linked to this, we also pride ourselves on the way in which DT and Engineering prepare students for the next stages of their learning and both within and beyond the core curriculum, we have established a wide range of links with further education and training providers, as well as a number of local employers.
Sedgefield Community College is a school that we can all be proud of.
Sedgefield Community College has been a highly successful school in recent years, but this does not mean that we ever take this success for granted. We continue to develop our approach, listening and acting upon feedback and recognise that this is vital as we measure ourselves against the very best practice and educational standards within our region and far beyond.
Through the information within this website, or perhaps a personal visit to us, we would be delighted to further explain and show you what makes Sedgefield Community College such a special place. We look forward to welcoming you to our outstanding school.
