The learning environment we provide allows students to grow and develop academically, socially and personally into responsible, caring and confident young people.

We seek to provide the best possible educational experience and outcomes for every child, where students make excellent progress and secure their most appropriate destination when they leave. We value the individual differences of our students, encourage them to succeed in everything they do. We achieve this through providing excellent teaching, fostering the very best relationships, having a personalised and enriched curriculum, having the highest aspirations for all our students and collaborating widely with a range of partners.

George Stephenson High School is an 11-18 high school with excellent facilities for learning. Students are encouraged and supported throughout their time to achieve highly and fulfil their potential in all aspects of school life. We take pride in our students, value our staff and relentlessly strive to improve as an educational provider. The school has continued to improve significantly, building up a reputation as a lively, caring school and an exciting place for students to learn which has meant that we have been oversubscribed for many years.
