Welcome to Consett Junior School Website
Welcome to our school website – the staff and I hope you had a lovely holiday. Looking ahead we will of course be hosting a special person’s event for Father’s day, a feast of sporting activities as well as our very special White River Brass day in June. Hopefully at some point we will receive some sunshine, it is most certainly overdue.
At Consett Junior School our aim is to give your child the best Education possible. Our dedicated team aim to give your child the very best start in life, allowing them to grow and flourish in all that they do. We believe that a full, broad and balanced curriculum enables children to grow and develop as a rounded individual. It is not just in the classroom where our children develop, learning takes place in a variety of places, from Forest school to the school yard, from learning through sport or in our outstanding school band. I am committed to working with all to ensure that the educational experience that our children receive is second to none, and that Consett Junior school is at the heart of our community.

“Pupils’ attitudes to learning are very positive. They are keen to try their best and work hard in all subjects. They are proud of their school and demonstrate this by taking a pride in their own work. Pupils’ books are neat and tidy. They show the care and effort made by each class.”
