Welcome to Deaf Hill Primary School. We are a smaller than average school situated in Trimdon Station, County Durham. We are a very happy, caring school where everyone loves to learn and receives the best possible start to their education.
“The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You have established an ethos of high expectation that has contributed to improving outcomes over time. The supportive environment, combined with clear leadership and good teaching, enable pupils to make good progress and achieve strong outcomes”
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.
“The broad and balanced curriculum is enriched by wider experiences and learning opportunities. Pupils value the close focus upon key skills of literacy and numeracy alongside more creative opportunities in subjects such as art. Pupils have extensive opportunities to participate in a range of sports, including swimming, football, rugby and netball.”
We have 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 School please do not hesitate to contact me.
