A first class, quality education...


classSELEfirst is situated in the heart of Hexham surrounded by the Sele Park and the historic buildings of Hexham Abbey. We aim to provide an exciting, motivating and high quality education for every child through effective organisation, committed knowledgeable staff, challenging expectations and high standards.

Our school has a very strong community spirit and well-established home-school partnerships. A committed Governing Body, an extremely supportive PTA and an enthusiastic out of hours club, SELElions, all contribute positively to the ethos of our school. We strive to encourage the children to look beyond the school and learn about their world in the broadest sense.

Community groups and agencies make regular visits to school. We have close links with local arts groups, sports networks, churches and other schools in our partnership. In turn school groups are often seen out and about studying various places of interest. Everyone who is involved with our school has the right to expect the best efforts from all.

National Teaching School

Ofsted Outstanding


As some of you may be aware, SELEfirst is a Teaching School and we have been training our own student teachers in school this year as part of an national initiative called School Direct.  The trainees have completed placements in schools across the Tyne Valley Teaching School Alliance, which also encompasses Tyne and Wear. SELEfirst is the lead school in the School Direct programme.
