Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Glendale Community Middle School.

I hope that you will find this website useful.  We are continually updating and adding information to the site and so please contact us if there are other items that you would find useful.

Our Governors and staff are committed to providing a caring, yet challenging, learning environment.  Children between the ages of nine and thirteen experience great changes physically, mentally, socially and emotionally. Our Middle School has the staff, expertise and facilities to help your child become a confident learner throughout these years.

We are proud of the happy atmosphere that our school enjoys.  Our pupils display a positive attitude to learning, helped, we believe, by the school’s attractive site and excellent facilities.  Our dedicated teachers offer incoming pupils new challenges and interests.  We expect high standards both academically and socially.  We have an excellent track record for pupil progress and our results in examinations compare extremely favourably both with Northumberland and national figures.

We believe that as a Middle School we are able to build on the firm foundation made during the First School years, by providing a broadening curriculum with increasing depth and developing pupils’ study skills.

If you would like to visit the school, please contact the school office who will arrange for me to meet with you and then our year 8 pupil guides will take you on a tour of the school.
