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.

Sedgefield Students Clean Up

A group of environmentally conscious Year 7 students from Sedgefield Community College recently volunteered to take part in Durham County Council’s annual event, The Big Spring Clean. On the morning of Wednesday 25th March the students began scouring the village, fervently collecting any litter they came across. They were so enthusiastic with the task that it wasn’t long before they had filled numerous bin bags of waste. The students involved received much praise from local residents and they were also greeted by the Sedgefield in Bloom ‘Bloomers’ who were equally impressed by their attitude and enthusiasm. The event gave the students an opportunity to understand the impact that litter has on a community and to feel that they were helping Sedgefield to ‘Bloom’. A big well done to those students.

Pupils take to the stage

On Tuesday 24th March, 63 students from SCC performed at the Gala Theatre.  Please click the link to be directed to the Northern Echo's article.
