Welcome to our website. I hope that you will find much of the information about the school that you need here, this website was launched in 2012 please do not hesitate to contact us if you can’t find the information that you need.
Prudhoe Community High School is a very caring and hardworking school. Our students and parents tell us that they value the way we care for the students here and have high praise for the learning that goes on here. Our exam results speak for themselves and our students move on from this school to universities across the country.
Over the last few years our exam results have continued to improve with 91% of our students gaining the benchmark of 5A*-C in 2012, 64% of our students gained 5A*-C with English and Maths and our A level students, achieved excellent grades. All of our recent Ofsted visitors have recognised the good and excellent work of the school.
The school is proud to offer a wide range of courses to its students; we are a Technology College and have specialist facilities on site. We also have an Arts Centre and Sports complex that is run in partnership with North Country Leisure. Recently the FUSE Media Centre has opened on site with its purpose built Radio & TV Studios and Cinema. We are strongly committed to working with all students to help them grow and develop into successful, intelligent, ambitious, caring adults and need to work in partnerships with parents, employers and universities to meet this aim. Students who come here should expect to be challenged by the work and they rise to these challenges.
Our main aim is to create a caring and secure environment in which young people, irrespective of sex, class, race, creed or disability can:
- maximise their individual potential through a broad set of personal learning experiences
- develop their own self respect through personal achievement
- acquire knowledge, understanding and skills necessary for a successful transition to adult and working life
- participate in the community and develop a sense of environmental responsibility
- develop their own values but empathise with and respect the views of others
- be creative, imaginative, enquiring, adventurous and ready to challenge established facts, views and motives
Outside of the lessons we have a broad range of activities that we encourage students to get involved with through the school, thanks to the dedication of the colleagues who work here. You will read about these on the other pages within this website and our other publications. I am proud of what goes on in this school and thank you for taking an interest in it. If you would like more information about the school which is not provided here please do contact us.
