Students light up Dance City! (November 2015)

This week our boys only dance group took part in the ‘Dance City boys only’ platform in Newcastle. Once again they were fantastic representatives of the college both in terms of the quality of their performance and in the way they reflected the attitudes of our students. It was pleasing that they received so many highly praising comments from those present, ranging from professional dance artists to Dance City’s own talent scouts. To perform to such a high standard at a venue of the statue of Dance City in front of hundreds of people was a fantastic achievement for the boys . Everyone at the college is very proud of the boys and their achievement. 

Interfaith Week (w/b 16th November)

Once again during our annual interfaith week, the college was grateful to be able to welcome representatives of many different faiths, including Christianity, Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism and the Jewish faith. The timing of this year’s interfaith week (days after the terrorist attacked in Paris) meant that students were particularly drawn into the debates and discussions that were stimulated by our guests.

Students and staff would like to thank each visitor to our school for providing the opportunity for students to dispel some of the myths surrounding these religions and recognise the many similarities that they share.

Children in Need Charity Event (Friday 13th November)

Many thanks to students, staff and parents for supporting the recent events that took place to raise money for the Children in Need charity. A host of activities took place throughout the day aimed at ensuring students had a good time as well as raised some money for this worthy cause.  Particular thanks to our students own fundraising group who organised the event.

Careers Fayre - what next! (17th November)

Following our year 11 post-16 options event earlier this term, the second of our major careers events took place recently. The event involved taking over our huge sports hall for the day, with 30 plus representatives from local employers, FE colleges and universities setting up stands aimed at helping students from year 7 to 10 build upon work that they have done in school identifying potential post 16 pathways. Once again we are convinced that the event helped students begin to focus upon opportunities that might interest them and identify what they need to do to get the career of their dreams!

Year 11 2015 GCSE Certificate Evening

This will take place on Thursday 26th November 6:30 - 8:30pm

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.
