Welcome to Astley Community High School.

Astley Community High School is a mixed 13-18 comprehensive school maintained by Northumberland County Council. We are part of the Seaton Valley Federation of Schools, together with Whytrig and Seaton Sluice Middle Schools. We are proud of being a school at the heart of the local community.

Whilst promoting a collective ethos of fulfillment, individual value and enjoyment, we acknowledge that our young people are individuals who possess differing strengths but are entitled to an effective education. As a medium sized school, we are able to respond to each individual's needs, and we pride ourselves on knowing your child really well both academically and pastorally. The support you and your child receive will be second to none, and we will do all we can to ensure your child settles into the school and does as well as they possibly can.

All of our students are closely monitored to identify if they are making the progress they should be and if they are not interventions are put in place to support them to achieve their full potential. As a school we put effective teaching and learning at the heart of every lesson and staff are part of a professional learning community that always strives to improve.

Our purpose is to provide a learning environment in which we facilitate the best possible variety of opportunities and challenges to enable all to achieve their potential. We aim to provide a wide range of curriculum subjects, while acknowledging the individual needs of our pupils. Students at our school have access to in-school careers support and independent careers advice, our community library, indoor swimming pool and Apple Mac Creative Suite.

We strive to teach our students important skills through a range of curriculum and extra-curricular activities to prepare them for employment and further education. Our dedicated Sixth Form Centre is very popular and over 65% of our pupils continue their studies at Astley after their GCSEs.

We are rightly proud of our school and look forward to meeting you.
