Our Church of England Middle School can be found in the picturesque Northumberland town of Rothbury, on the edge of the Northumberland National Park. The geographical area is rural and sparsely populated with a catchment that includes a small rural town, small villages, hamlets and farms. We are a part of Cheviot Learning Trust and work closely with fellow schools in the  Morpeth Partnership.  These very close links are used to develop collaborative opportunities to benefit pupils, staff and schools for “the good of all”.

Rothbury can be reached by taking the B6344 or B6341 off the A697.


The majority of our communications are distributed electronically. If you would specifically like a hard copy, please contact school, using the details above.  If a parent would like a paper copy of the information on our website then this will be provided free of charge.
