About The Academy at Shotton Hall

The Academy at Shotton Hall is a fully comprehensive Academy in Peterlee which provides a vibrant and stimulating environment for 11 - 16 year olds. In our most recent Ofsted inspection we were judged to be 'Outstanding' - the highest accolade a school can achieve.

Our brand new school 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 both maths and English GCSEs at grades A* - C - one of the highest results in the whole county.

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!

We can offer your child a well rounded education in a place of excellence where everyone has the opportunity to fulfil 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.
