As Executive Principal at South Hylton Primary Academy, it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to our vibrant learning community. South Hylton is a unique village school located near the heart of the city, with a strong sense of community and high aspirations for all children.

The academy became part of the Laidlaw Schools Trust in September 2017, allowing us to share expertise and opportunities within a strong family of schools. The Trust is committed to making a difference to the lives of all the children and the communities it serves.

Through our website, you will be able to see a snapshot of what life and learning looks like for our children, and feel part of their learning experiences. We will continue to keep you up to date with our achievements and activities so please visit our site regularly or follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook.

Our recent results for 2019 continue to demonstrate a high standard of consistency for our students, with that particular cohort posting ‘well-above’ progress scores for both maths and writing. Alongside attainment scores which are comparable in all regards to those produced nationally.
