Our curriculum has been skilfully adapted to the needs and interests of the students and this has helped to widen the range of subjects in which students do well. There is a wide array of clubs and visits, and the students value the opportunities they are offered.

The sporting academies in cricket, football, rugby and dance all provide yet further opportunity to work with professional coaches alongside the rigorous academic curriculum. The international visit opportunities are inspirational, with visits offered including Cambodia, China, Costa Rica, Tanzania, Madrid, New York and Paris.

Hetton has productive links with all local post-16 providers including Durham Sixth Form, New College Durham, Sunderland College and Durham Johnston Sixth Form. The school works hard to ensure students are prepared for this important post-16 decision with our award-winning careers programme. This includes strong links with apprenticeship providers and universities such as Newcastle, Durham and Cambridge.
