Northern Saints Church of England Primary School was established in September 2013. It replaced two former schools:
Bishop Harland Church of England VA Primary
Hylton Red House Primary
We had worked together for a couple of years before we formed the new school and realised that we would be stronger together. It was fantastic that, as we worked things out, the Trade Unions and staff were firmly behind us. Local Authority Officers and the Diocese together with Councillors all agreed it was the best way forward. Parents were almost all in support although it took some getting used to because we were all proud of the previous schools. But now we are all together the children are making so much more progress. We are very lucky to be supported by a fantastic parent group and local community.
A significant building programme taking 1 year to complete was finished in August 2014.
