Hamsterley Primary School is situated in an attractive rural village on the edge of Hamsterley Forest, about eight miles from the town of Bishop Auckland.
The school has a strong partnership with the local Comprehensive schools. We also organise joint events with other local primary schools such as weekend residential visits, sporting events and other activities to enhance your child’s educational and social experiences.
We have high expectations of all children and encourage independence so that they take responsibility for their own success. As a small school we are able to support all children as individuals enabling them to unlock their potential. This means we can celebrate their success together.
