Hetton School is an expanding 11-16 mixed comprehensive school on the southeast outskirts of Sunderland and close to Durham. The school is a vibrant community, rich in extra-curricular experiences, including Cricket, Girl’s Football and Rugby Academies. An integral part of the school is the Enhanced Language Provision, providing for the needs of students with speech and language barriers from across the authority and wider area. Judged ‘Requires Improvement’ in its last inspection in January 2018, the school has made huge strides in the last three years. The school moved into a brand-new building in September 2016.
As a school, we believe in cultivating a growth Mindset in young people. By developing their resilience, love of learning and by finding inspiration in the success of others, they learn to embrace challenge and aspire to successful careers in a wide variety of areas. We are enormously proud of the wider curriculum, pastoral care, and safe environment we offer to our students.
We promise you high challenge and support, genuine teamwork, and responsibility. Hetton School is an attractive proposition for someone wishing to come and make their mark and to join our journey of improvement.
