St William’s is a Catholic Academy, part of the Bishop Hogarth Catholic Education Trust and is situated in Trimdon Village, Co. Durham.

The present school was built in 1978 to replace older premises which catered separately for Infant and Junior children. We have access to extensive playing fields and additional facilities because of our close links with neighbouring schools.

We have two playgrounds, one for each key stage, which are marked for different play and learning activities. We have recently installed a tyre park for balance play and have plans to further develop the grounds. School security is of paramount importance and we now have an improved main entrance and administration areas. Visitors to school must enter school by the main entrance and sign in and out.

We have a central hall with a modern furbished kitchen where all meals are cooked on site. Off the hall we have five large classrooms and a nursery. All our classrooms are pleasant and reflect the learning going on within. Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and PC network.

We have close links with our three Parish communities of St. William’s Trimdon, St John Fisher, Sedgefield and St Joseph’s, Coxhoe and regularly hold Masses in the school hall. We also have strong links with the local library, the Community allotment and Sedgefield Sport and Community College through our sports partnership which provides many opportunities to learn and compete in several sporting events.

Prospective parents and pupils are invited to look around school and discuss aspects of school life in more detail.
