Sedgefield Community College has a long established reputation as being one of the leading schools not only in County Durham, but in the whole of the wider region.  Judged to be ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in all possible respects, we have consistently been the highest attaining school in County Durham over recent years.  As a consequence of our success, we have regularly been asked to provide additional support to other schools and we do so in order to help as many young people as possible to reach their potential.  

Our school vision is summed up by the word ACHIEVE and we know that with excellent teaching and learning, students of all abilities can aspire and reach great heights.  Crucially, we recognise that achievement is not simply about exam success, although this is something in which we excel.  Instead, we understand that helping our young people to develop the curiosity, independence and skills that will enable them to be genuine lifelong learners is a key measure of our success.  This focus on thinking skills is integral to the innovative and highly effective approach to the planning and delivery of lessons that takes place across our school.
