The answer to the question "Why Shotton Hall?" is simple - we can offer your child a well rounded education in a place of excellence where everyone has the opportunity to fulfill their potential. Your child will be in a warm and supportive environment and will encounter challenging, exciting and enjoyable education experiences that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Our new school which opened (with much excitement) in January 2011 is a fantastic environment for children to learn in, offering them state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to enhance their education.
Our exam results speak for themselves with 81% of this year's GSCE students gaining Maths and English GCSEs at grades A* - C - the highest results in County Durham.
However, we believe that academic success alone is not enough and, as an Academy who specialises in performing arts, we take great pride in the extra dimension that dance, drama and musical activities bring to children's school experience. As anyone who has ever been to one of our wonderful school musicals will tell you, we can certainly give the bigger productions a run for their money!
Our motto is ‘Achievement through Partnership’ where education is seen as a partnership between school, home and the community and where we aim to bring out the best in every child together.
