It's Official! - County Durham's Highest Attaining Secondary School

Following the publication of 2015 GCSE results it has been confirmed that for the second consecutive year Sedgefield Community College has achieved the acolade of County Durham's highest attaining secondary school.

Governors and the Headteacher would like to congratulate the class of 2015 and college staff on their outstanding performance.

Sedgefield Community College students continue to excel

In another challenging year for all schools, the recent release of GCSE results, show standards at Sedgefield Community College have continued the trend of year on year improvement, mirroring the college’s drive to maximise the full potential of all students regardless of ability. Consistently outstanding student performance has placed Sedgefield amongst a small group of highest achieving schools in the North and this year’s GCSE results has shown that the school has no intention of allowing standards to slip.
Headteacher Dave Davies remarked upon the continued success of the college;
Once again Sedgefield Community College students have excelled and I am hugely proud of them and their teachers. I do hope that students and their parents recognise that results of the magnitude that we are seeing today are far from the norm across all schools, but are in fact exceptional to only the highest performing schools.  I am absolutely delighted that the hard work of our students and the aspirational practice of their teachers has come together to deliver this outstanding outcome.
Whilst demand for places at Sedgefield already far outstrips places available, having recently achieved a number of prestigious awards, I have no doubt that these latest GCSE results will further strengthen the college’s reputation and once again attract huge demand for places this Autumn when parents begin to apply for places for the 2016 intake.

We wish our class of 2015, happiness and every success in their life after Sedgefield Community College.

The Hub @ Sedgefield Community College

Over recent months the college has been involved in restructuring how we provide for the needs of our community outside of school hours. Our ambition is for Sedgefield Community College to become more of an integral part of our local community, and  be a resource for all, making a telling contribution to quality of life for local people. To this end the activities that are offered after school hours will, and already, have been expanded and come under the new umbrella term of ‘The Hub’ which is the part of the school which manages community use of the facility.

During the Summer months a promotional campaign will take place to raise awareness of ‘the hub’ and the activities on offer, as well as drawing attention to the fact that the facilities can be booked by anyone within the community.

Anyone who would like to take advantage of the clubs/activities on offer or would like to book a facility (perhaps for a children’s party) then visit ‘The Hub’ area on our college website (by clicking ‘The Hub’ logo above) to find out how to contact us.


Recently statistics have been published that show that once students leave Sedgefield Community College at the end of Year 11, they are considerably more likely to go into employment with training or education than other students either within the County or nationally.  We are proud that our outstanding careers education programme has played its part in achieving such an impressive outcome.
