Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to Deaf Hill Primary and Nursery School. We are a smaller than average primary school situated in Trimdon Station, County Durham.

“In this good school children get off to an excellent start.” Ofsted 2012

At Deaf Hill we ensure that every child is provided with an excellent education that is both enjoyable and challenging. Our school provides a safe, stimulating and happy learning environment.

“Pupils engage very well with other children and with adults. This is reflected in their excellent behaviour which creates a harmonious school where there is a high regard for others.” Ofsted 2012

We have a dedicated staff who ensure that each individual child is treated with respect and pushed to attain and go beyond their potential.

Hopefully within these pages you will get a flavour of the school and the exciting journey that children embark upon when they join us.  If you would like any further information about any aspect of life at Deaf Hill Primary and Nursery School please do not hesitate to contact me.


Mr Paul Newton
