THE SCHOOL SITE
The site for the new school is the building previously used by Darlington College, situated on Catterick Road. The building was purchased by the Department for Education and is has been fully remodelled and refurbished to make a wonderful and state of the art school. We are so proud of our school building.
The ground floor of the building contains infant classrooms, a library and ‘creation space’ – where children can cook, paint and complete technology projects. The upstairs includes a large hall and classrooms for the older children. The Trust worked closely with the DFE and appointed contractors to ensure that the building is perfect and a school to be proud of. Some of the key features include:
a large hall, large enough to fit all of our children for collective events and assemblies as we are determined to develop a family approach to our school;
a dedicated space for design technology, including cooking activities;
a separate library to promote a love of reading and the importance of valuing books;
state of the art ICT facilities with top specification equipment and facilities across the school;
generous sized classrooms, with break out spaces allocated to each year group;
school grounds - extensive outdoor areas, including our own school field, fire pit area, multi-use games area (MUGA), forest schools woodland area and dedicated playgrounds for all ages.

All ground floor classrooms (infants) have direct access to their outdoor learning space - with the building being transformed in to a light and airy learning environment. Upstairs classrooms have panoramic views of the site through full wall windows, as well as additional roof lights to enhance the experience of learning within the building. We are delighted with our building!
