About Our Church Schools

We are committed to giving our children the best possible start in life.

Church schools have their foundation in the Christian Gospel and are linked to our worshipping communities. Day-to-day life reflects that foundation throughout the whole curriculum and within the ethos of the school.

Many of our schools are small and in rural locations, giving local children access to education near to where they live. We believe that this is incredibly important and that often village schools serve as a valuable community resource for people of all ages.

The Joint Education Team covers ten Local Authorities from the Tees to the Tweed. In the Diocese of Durham, the team advises 57 primary and secondary schools, looking after more than 20,000 children.
