COMING SOON! Uniting Communities through Drama and Dance

Earlier in the year, members of BATH (Bishop Auckland Theatre Hooligans) received a warm welcome from our friends in Montego Bay, when they travelled to Jamaica to build much-needed bathroom facilities for Brightley Beam Primary School. Now, it is our turn to play host.


New school on track for January opening

Sir Robert McAlpine builders have made excellent progress with our new Academy over the summer holidays and are hoping to provide us with access to the new building as early as 15th December this year.


Celebrating A-Level Results

Students are once again celebrating after another successful year of Sixth Form study. Year 13 students have achieved particularly well and all students have gained the necessary qualifications to support them as they move into Higher Education, training or employment.


International School Award Success

King James has been awarded the British Council’s prestigious full International School Award for the second time, in recognition of our work to bring the world into the classroom. The award is a badge of honour for schools that promote international education, for example through visits, projects and links with partner schools overseas.


COMING SOON! Zorbing Taster Sessions

This Half Term, students will be able to take part in an exhilarating Zorbing taster session in conjunction with Consett & District YMCA.


COMING SOON! Short Courses for Local Primary Schools

This year we want to make working with primary schools one of our priorities. We will be offering a range of short courses for students in Years 5 and 6, and sharing our fantastic new facilities to enhance learning opportunities for all primary schools in our local community.


Summer Adventures make Transition Easy

Each year at King James we offer a free fun-packed Summer School for all our new Year 7 pupils who will be joining us in September, culminating in a confidence-building residential visit. This year, we improved our programme even further to offer two exciting destinations - Peak Venture in South Yorkshire and Cartagena in Spain!
