Sedgefield Community College is a highly regarded 11 – 16 secondary school whose success reflects its ethos and culture of high expectations and quality, coupled with creativity and innovation.
Our vision for Sedgefield, summarised in the acronym; ACHIEVE@Sedgefield , is a vision that we believe has led us to become the outstanding school that we are confident we are. What though does it mean for a school to be outstanding? Academic success is, of course, an important element and excellent learning and teaching ensure that our students achieve this.
However, an outstanding school is about so much more than results alone. We are outstanding due to the quality of the experience and opportunities that we provide for our students each and every day.
We are certainly extremely fortunate to have a new, contemporary and inspirational school building, together with all of the resources it brings. Our building will contribute to our success for many years to come, enabling us to continue to evolve and develop in a way that schools less fortunate will find difficult to do. Despite this, our wonderful building does not make an outstanding school it merely houses one.
We are an outstanding school due to the excellence of the people that come to Sedgefield Community College each day and the relationships that they build with each other that contribute so much to our success.
We have excellent staff, supportive parents and truly fantastic students who work together towards a common aim. Our aim is to ensure that those wonderful young people who come to our school enjoy an outstanding experience that ensures that they achieve at Sedgefield Community College and will continue to achieve for the rest of their lives.
