We would be delighted to welcome you and your family to our Open Morning on Saturday 19th September 2015 10 am – 1 pm. The Open Morning is a great opportunity to experience life at Red House and to see what our school can offer your child.


  • Nurturing environment – We create a nurturing environment where children are encouraged to achieve their full potential
  • Unique family atmosphere – We maintain a positive and supportive environment creating a unique family atmosphere
  • Small class sizes – This enables our teachers to invest the time to nurture your child in all aspects of school life
  • Wrap Around Care – We provide excellent Wrap Around Care from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm for children whose parents require an extended day.  The Wrap Around Care is very flexible and can be booked on an ad hoc basis to suit parents needs
  • Holiday Club – We provide a diverse and ever-changing range of activities in our Holiday Club for children that attend the Nursery & Infants School, resulting in the School being open 50 weeks of the year
  • Independent school – As an independent school we are not restricted by the National Curriculum which has a narrow focus.  We educate children across a wide range of subjects to provide them with a broad knowledge and experience.  We believe this is vital in developing children’s interests and talents, whilst preparing them for their GCSE’s
  • Co-curricular activities – We offer a wide range of co-curricular activities throughout the year to further develop your child’s confidence and skills
  • Coach service – We provide an efficient coach service to provide parents with a convenient way of transporting their children to and from school.  Routes cover Sedgefield, Wynyard, Wolviston, Middlesbrough, Ingleby Barwick and Hartlepool, with a Darlington route currently being progressed


  • Top performing co-educational independent school in England – For the second year running we have been ranked the top performing co-educational independent school in England, without a sixth form, in the Sunday Times League Tables
  • Excellent GCSE results – Our 2014 GCSE results were amongst the best in the school’s history and amongst the highest in our region
  • Outstanding Early Years – We achieved the highest rating of ‘outstanding’ in every category in our Early Years Foundation Stage by the Independent Schools Inspectorate
