A Warm Welcome to Kepier

Welcome to our website. We really believe Kepier is ‘a special place’. There's a real buzz around our school; an excitement about the whole process of learning. Through everything we do, learners are encouraged to develop as unique individuals. We give them the confidence to voice what they truly want from life, and the capacity to go out and get it. At Kepier, we actively promote good behaviour and we strive to create a safe, orderly, purposeful, happy and challenging environment, in which outstanding teaching and learning can take place.

What our Parents say.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent way the school has handled my son's transition from primary to secondary education.

I just wanted to write and congratulate the pupils and staff on their recent GCSE results.

Parent Kepier

Speaking as a parent, I am highly satisfied with the school. I have been kept informed of all the positive choices that my son has made and he has also made excellent progress.

Owen's Community Spirit

We have had a lovely phone call from a member of the public regarding a young learner who had helped a lady cross the road in Houghton. Jennifer, who works at Lloyds Bank, telephoned the school to praise the learner. She said 'the boy, with no hesitation, passed his bag to his friend and politely helped the lady cross the road.' During assembly, Mrs. Cooper asked if anyone knew who the learner was, and Owen raised his hand. Mr. Turton, Owen's coach said 'I'm not surprised that Owen has done this good deed, as he is an excellent learner, who is very thoughtful." Well done Owen, we are all very proud of you!


Portland School Visit Kepier

Kepier were delighted to welcome students from Portland School to enjoy an afternoon working with our Science Department. They carried out a range of experiments whilst here and both they and our staff enjoyed a lovely afternoon. Mrs. Fuller from Portland School said "thank you to everyone at Kepier for being so accommodating." Special thanks to our science technician Miss Jackson for giving up her time to prepare all the experiments and help the students.

Will and Henry represented County Durham in The English Cross Country Championships held in Leeds last Saturday. In bitterly cold conditions and the occasional blizzard, Will finished 39th and Henry 180th out of 339 runners. Will was the first Durham runner home and Henry the third. From everyone at Kepier, well done to both of you!!!
