About Us

Welcome Message

Dear Parents, Carers and Visitors to our School,

I am delighted to welcome you to our school website where we aim to provide up to date information about life at Stobhillgate First School.

Stobhillgate First School is situated in the beautiful, historic market town of Morpeth. We are a one form entry school and welcomes children aged from 3 to 9 years. We now offer 30 hours nursery provision for families that are eligible and wrap-around childcare before and after the school day via our morning Breakfast club (07:30am – 9:00am) and our After-school Club (3:15am – 5:30pm). We also offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs including: golf, archery, fencing and much more!  

At Stobhillgate we have 4 defining principles that are central to everything we do:

Inspiration           Excellence         Empathy        Collaboration

We aim to promote a safe and secure environment in which children learn to be members of a caring community. We are passionate about developing the whole child and nurturing a love for learning. We believe that children are able to achieve their full potential in a happy and supportive environment, whilst enjoying their time in school.

We aim to inspire our children by bringing learning to life and developing a truly creative curriculum that nurtures a love of learning. We ensure topics have a clear purpose; allow our children to visit interesting places, work collaboratively with others and enable our children to develop a broad range of skills inside and outside the classroom. For instance, we ensure that all year groups take part in Forest School. We believe Forest School is a brilliant way of developing empathy and collaboration!

I am privileged to work with enthusiastic, caring and hardworking pupils supported by a dedicated, talented staff and Governing Body.  Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any queries. We warmly welcome visits from new parents. Please contact the School Office to arrange an appointment.
