Welcome to Seaton Burn College


Steve Campbell

 


All over the world, research is showing that children learn and develop best when they are nurtured and taught in organisations which know them and their families well; organisations which can respond to who they really are as young people; organisations where children cannot become lost in the crowd.

A recent American paper on school size concludes :

‘Large schools tend to function like factories, small schools more like communities’

‘Small schools nurture a sense of belonging. They enable teachers to work more
closely with a smaller number of students and to respond to individual needs.
This fosters a stronger relationship between teacher and child’

We believe that Seaton Burn offers a unique form of this human-scale approach
to education. In addition to this, because we have built powerful partnerships
with other schools, businesses and Universities, we also offer an impressive
range of curriculum, progression and enrichment opportunity.

Our students consistently achieve good results and
progress successfully into work or further and higher education.
You are warmly invited to visit us and to experience for yourself our school
at work.

Steve Campbell, Acting Principal
