About Teesside High School
Teesside High School is a unique, lively and dynamic school for girls and boys from 3 to 18. The school encourages a truly ‘family’ atmosphere where everyone feels at home.
The proven success of the students is based on high expectations, quality teaching and dedicated pastoral care, together with excellent facilities and a varied and full extra-curricular provision.
As a school, we do not select by academic ability alone, focussing more on what a child can do, rather than what they can't. We passionately believe that this leads to a much more diverse and inclusive school community where each child can experience a real sense of belonging. Combined with our small class sizes, this is borne out by our exam results in which our ‘value added’ is excellent.
Recent years have seen continually good results for the school, which is regularly amongst the top schools in the area for A-level and GCSE results. As a relatively small school with the ability to give individual care in small classes, our pupils achieve excellent A level results, giving them the best possible start for their university careers. This year we achieved a 100% pass rate at A-level with 43% of students obtaining grades A* to B. 91% of our students achieved GCSEs at grades A* to C.
Few schools in the region enjoy such a magnificent location. We are situated in 19 acres of wooded grounds on the banks of the River Tees with extensive playing fields, tennis and netball courts, a nature trail and orienteering course. Recent development programmes have seen the school benefit from a state-of-the-art, purpose built Sixth Form Centre, new classrooms and fitness suite.
We are part of the ‘Eco-School’ initiative, which embodies the values of sustainability and environmental improvement. We aim to invest in renewable energy and are actively involving our students in our green strategy.
The whole school is based on one site, giving all our young people a wonderful space in which to develop and flourish in a secure environment.
