Seaham School of Technology is a fully comprehensive school which means that we are committed to the best education for all our pupils and we promote their success in all spheres of school life.

For our pupils at Seaham we aim to promote the highest standards of attainment both inside and outside the curriculum; and from our pupils we expect equally high standards of behaviour, dress, courtesy, and a firm commitment to their studies and to the wider life of the school. We value all our pupils and are inclusive in our approach, thus we have a wide range of types of support being given to children throughout their subject lessons as well as through our Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship curriculum.

As a school we place great emphasis on developing the self-confidence, skills and values that will enable our pupils to make a positive contribution to our constantly changing 21st Century world. We are a learning community that aims to equip our pupils with an approach to learning and knowledge which ensures that they are fully  prepared to progress to further or higher education and to an increasingly demanding workplace.

As a Technology College, our facilities in IT are excellent and almost all classrooms are fitted with the latest whiteboard technology. Pupils have access to laptop computers in their studies across the school thus enabling them to participate in the full range of on-line learning opportunities.

We encourage you to contact the school with any queries you may have – the staff is happy to communicate fully with all members of the school community.


General Information  

Contact with Parents
Parents are welcome at Seaham School of Technology at any time, preferably by appointment, since the staff's teaching commitment is regarded as a priority and we would not want you to have a wasted journey.

Communication between school and home takes various forms: School Newsletter, the school web site, letters to parents, the Student Planner, telephone conversations and Parents' Evenings. There is an answer phone facility outside school hours.

Each year you will receive a copy of the Governors' Report to Parents. This describes important information on the progress of the school, its staff and students, over the previous twelve months. Also included are such items as examination results and attendance figures together with national comparisons.  

Student Planner
To enable you to monitor the work your child is doing at school, each student is provided with a Student Planner which you should ask to see regularly so that you know what homework is being set each day and you can check that it is being completed. You should ask to see your child's books when they are at home. If you wish to make comments in the planner please do so. It is also helpful to us if you initial each page as you check it. Should you feel that homework is not being set as appropriate, please contact your child's personal tutor or Head of Year.  

Parents' Evenings
There is an opportunity to visit the school during each academic year to discuss the progress of your child.

These Evenings are shown on the school's Calendar of Events and you will also be informed by letter and invited to make appointments.
Please contact the school if your child is absent / late. You may also write the date of absence and reason in your child's planner.

For planned absences please contact your child's Head Of Year.

We would encourage parents to make routine medical and dental appointments outside school hours or during the school holidays.  

We consider that to improve study skills and standards of work there is a minimum of personal equipment that students should bring to school each day for work:-
bullet Calculator
bullet Coloured Pencils
bullet Dictionary
bullet Eraser
bullet Pen/Biro
bullet Pencils
bullet Pencil Sharpener
bullet Protractor and Compass
bullet 30 cm Ruler        

Access to a computer with Internet provision at home will be an advantage to students.
