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.

County Durham's highest attaining Secondary School

We are delighted to announce that the outstanding performance of students in the 2014 GCSE examinations has taken Sedgefield Community College to number one spot at the top of the performance tables for County Durham for the first time in the history of the college.

Whats on

SCHOOLBOYS will show they have all the right moves when they perform at a major dance event next month.

About 17 boys at Sedgefield Community College in County Durham have been working on an energetic routine ahead of the Boyz Moves Platform in Dance City in Newcastle on Sunday, November 23.

Dance teacher Stacey Arrowsmith started a "boyz" project at the school as she was keen to quash the myth that dance was just for girls.

“I had been working with 11 to 14-year-olds and found the boys responded really well to contemporary dance,” she said.

“I think a lot of boys see dancing as a feminine activity for girls and I wanted to prove that this is not the case at all. The routine we will perform is based on the theme of a wolf pack and is very physical, with lots of contact and floor work. The boys quickly realised that to be a dancer you have to be strong, powerful and athletic.”

Tickets for the Boyz Moves Platform cost £5 and are available from dancecity.co.uk

Outstanding GCSE Results  - Sedgefield Community College students excel yet again!

The college is pleased once again to report another outstanding set of GCSE results, which maintains  Sedgefield’s place as one of the North’s East’s highest achieving schools.

Governors and the Headteacher, Dave Davies are absolutely delighted for students and staff who have worked so hard to produce their stunning performance. In a challenging year, where a number of significant adjustments to how students are examined were thrust upon schools midway through courses, the sheer determination of students to achieve the highest possible grades has certainly paid off.

Commenting upon the GCSE results Mr Davies added, ‘I would like take this opportunity to both congratulate students on their outstanding performance, and also to thank them for further enhancing the strong reputation of the college through their achievements. The college now faces unprecedented demand for places. As a result we start the new school year in September with the biggest student intake the college has ever seen, and if there had been enough space we could have easily taken significantly more students such was the demand. It is satisfying to know that so many parents now trust the college with their children’s education, and demonstrate their confidence in our ability to maximise the potential of all students by choosing Sedgefield.

We wish our class of 2014, happiness and every success in their life after Sedgefield Community College.
