  • Another blooming success!

    Sedgefield struck gold once again in the recent Northumbria in Bloom awards, winning gold and Best Small Town.

  • Congratulations to our class of 2017

    Having recently been recognised by OFSTED as an ‘Outstanding’ school in all respects it is perhaps no surprise that following the recent release of GCSE results Sedgefield Community College has retained is position as County Durham’s highest attaining secondary school.

  • Follow the yellow brick road………

    Sedgefield’s annual Scarecrow Festival took place this August with many locals joining in the fun. Despite the overcast weather scarecrows were displayed all across the village with a number of ideas being produced from straw, clothes and even old dolls. Displays involved Banana Man, the Halloween Howlers and Rapunzel - who almost lost her golden locks to the wind.

  • Sedgefield Village Action Group

    Another success! The planning appeal application for 150 houses between Beacon Lane and Stockton Road has been rejected by the Planning Inspectorate.
