The Academy at Shotton Hall is a fully comprehensive Academy in Peterlee which provides a vibrant and stimulating environment for 11 – 16 year olds. In our most recent Ofsted inspection we were judged to be 'Outstanding' - the highest accolade a school can achieve.

Our school, which opened in January 2011, is a fantastic environment for children to learn in, offering them state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to enhance their education. Our students are friendly and polite and our teachers are enthusiastic, inspiring and always willing to help. If you would like to experience a school which will inspire you to teach, The Academy at Shotton Hall will do just that.
