World Book Day

Staindrop celebrated world book day in style. Organised by Ms. Walker, students have been taking part in a range of activities and competitions this week, with staff and students dressing up as their favourite literary character on world book day, 2nd March.

Y10 football team - Ben Potts champions!

Staindrop has worked hard to get to the final and came through a tough semi final vs Parkside. Having previously lost to Durham Johnston in a league fixture earlier in the year the odds were stacked against the year 10 team.  The squad was at full strength this time which would prove to be key for what was to be an enthralling final. The match went into extra time, and the final score was 2-1 to Staindrop.

Christmas Hampers

Year 7 created over 20 festive hampers to be delivered into the local community. Governors, Ken Dodd and Tracey Newby, came into school on Friday and had a very challenging job in hand to select the best hamper.

Carol service

Y7, Y8 and Y9 enjoyed their Carol Service at St Mary’s church in Staindrop. The service followed a traditional format and it was a lovely occasion. Reverend Steventon was very impressed with the exemplary behaviour of our students and the performers for their singing.
