Engaging Minds, Broadening Horizons

Ethos & Values

Our Vision:

“To enable the young people of Seaham to achieve the highest possible outcomes which they can use to continue their learning and make a valuable contribution to the global society in which we all now live. They should feel safe, secure, be free from prejudice and be able to develop a mutual respect for all others. Students should be ready to take on the challenges of the twenty-first century and leave school with hope for their future. They should have the confidence to take on new opportunities and know where to turn when a helping hand is required. When they leave, their minds have been engaged, their horizons have been broadened, and they should have valued their educational experience.”

Mr G W Lumsdon
Head Teacher


Seaham High School firmly believes in the core values of Kindness, Integrity and Pride and expects students, staff, parents and carers to display these values. Furthermore, we expect students to demonstrate the 6R's (Resilience, Risk-Taker, Responsive, Respectful, Reflective and Responsible) every day.
