Virutal Open Evening


I am delighted to welcome all prospective parents to our Virtual Opening Evening page. Navigating through the different sections, I hope you will discover the essential values and ethos of our school: a vibrant and caring community where children feel safe and happy and strive to do their best.

Unfortunately, we aren’t able to welcome families into the school this year, but I hope that the videos and documentation give you an insight into what we are about as a school. We take great pride in the fact that we are an inclusive learning community that celebrates the achievements, successes and talents of all pupils. As you can see from our ‘Year 7 First Day’ video, we take our duty of care for children transferring from the primary sector extremely seriously and invest a lot of time and energy in ensuring that all pupils are settled and feel confident in their new learning environment. Every effort is made to ensure that our key values underpin all of the work we undertake to ensure a smooth transition to secondary school.

Our central aim is to develop Hebburn Comprehensive School as a centre of excellence for all, ensuring the highest standards in teaching and learning and pastoral care. We work in close partnership with parents and carers to raise aspirations in all our young people, inculcating a respect for one another and for the values of learning, citizenship and tolerance.

We have an unwavering commitment in providing the highest standard of education, aiming to enhance the life chances of every single pupil in our care. We firmly believe that children need – and have the right – to be happy and feel safe at school, in order for them to benefit from the diverse range of opportunities that the school has to offer and enjoy levels of achievement in line with, and beyond, their potential. We want all children to strive to be the very best they can be.

I look forward to meeting families when circumstances allow.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

With very best wishes,

David Thompson

Head Teacher
