South Shields School is a family away from home. We aim to provide a learning environment with high challenge coupled with high support rooted in education research.

We have a holistic approach to learning focused on both therapeutic and academic intervention and we pride ourselves on ensuring that exceptional teaching, learning and assessment is at the heart of everything we do, underpinned by a relentless belief in the importance of developing a growth mindset approach to our life as learners.
