Headteacher welcome

A very warm welcome to children, parents, carers and visitors. I am pleased to welcome you to our school website and hope that it provides you with a snapshot of our school and that you find the information that you are looking for.  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you require any further information.


We are a large, long established school, situated in the heart of our community.  We attract children and families from Darras Hall, wider Ponteland localities and Newcastle.  We are proud to be part of Pele Trust and work closely with our colleagues in neighbouring schools to ensure that all of our pupils are provided with the very best possible educational experiences, from the age of 3 to 18. 


Our school is continually developing and we endeavour to ensure that the experiences we offer our pupils are responsive to the ever changing world.   It is our vision that our children leave Darras Hall as happy, successful, resilient young people, who are curious about their world and are respectful towards those they share it with.  We were excited to become a Primary school in September 2017 and are exceptionally proud of our state of the art new school building, which opened in September 2018.    


We aim to continually evaluate and develop the experiences that we provide for your children. Please do contact the school office if you would like an appointment to see me and I will endeavour to see you as soon as possible.


Best Wishes


Victoria Parr
