Hetton School works closely with staff from the Primary Schools to provide a supportive and inclusive KS2/3 transition programme.

Our four main partner primary schools are:

As well as our main partner primaries, we also work with:

At Hetton School, we pride ourselves in our sporting achievements. At the top of this are our young footballers and cricketers. In the past few years our school teams have won the County Cups, the Sunderland Inter City Cup and reached several finals in both football and Cricket. This is credit to the skill and commitment of our own staff who have coached and supported our students to such success.

When pupils arrive at Hetton School in September, they will be in a Year 7 tutor group that is also part of Year 7 under a Head of Year. They will also be made part of a 'House' that they will compete for during their time at Hetton School.
There are 3 Houses – Bowes, Lambton & Neville
