Ofsted Information


Sedgefield Community College was first judged to be ‘Outstanding’ (in all possible categories) by Ofsted in March 2017.  During a subsequent inspection visit in May 2022, Ofsted confirmed that we remain an ‘Outstanding’ school commenting:

  • “Sedgefield Community College is not just a community in name only.  Pupils and staff feel this is a place where they are safe, happy and valued.  Pupils trust that staff have their best interests at heart.”
  • “This is an environment where pupils are being moulded to be positive citizens and to achieve their very best.”
  • “The staff celebrates difference and equality.  Pupils strongly feel that they are taught to respect people from other backgrounds.”
  • “Leaders have created a curriculum that is highly ambitious in its aspiration for what all pupils will learn.  Leaders carefully balance academic success alongside building pupils’ character.”
