South Shields School

About Us

South Shields School is a co-educational, 11-16 school. Our building is world class and the accommodation enables us to offer exceptional learning experiences.

We have three colleges, Herschel, Davy and Swan, named after famous scientists and inventors connected with light.  Students are allocated a college on entry and college life will be a key part in ensuring all students develop a sense of self-awareness to become reflective and resilient learners.  College life builds a sense of community and identity across year groups through involvement in charity work, competitions and student voice. College life is a pivotal part of student personal development.

British Values

South Shields School is committed to serving its community. It recognises the multi- cultural, multi-faith and ever changing nature of the United Kingdom.

We are resolute in the combined action of ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly or illegally influence them.
