Our School

Our school is situated in the eastern end of the market town of Hexham. Currently we have 101 pupils on roll (including Nursery). This is an ideal size – large enough to have single age classes but small enough for everyone to get to know each other. The school consists of four classes and an Early Years Unit.

Surrounding the school is a large playing field, two playgrounds and a community garden which the children use as an additional curriculum resource. The school enjoys beautiful views over Hexham and beyond.

Our Headteacher is Mrs Justine Overton
