Take the next step
We are proud to be one of the North East's leading independent schools. Enquire about joining our wonderful and thriving school community.
School should be a time of enormous fun and happiness and we believe that only when children are happy and confident will they be able to fulfil their potential in every sphere of school life.
We aim to ensure that every pupil feels safe, secure, understood and valued, and pupils are encouraged to be self-confident and considerate of the needs of others. All members of our school community, staff, parents and pupils themselves, have a role to play in maintaining the welcoming atmosphere which is rooted in our ethos.
At the heart of our pastoral care system is the child’s Form Teacher who sees his or her charges on a daily basis, gets to know them very well indeed and leads a weekly informal Form Period where the children are encouraged to discuss any issues or concerns, or merely to celebrate the achievements of the previous week. To complement this, our morning assemblies regularly cover pastoral issues and there is a comprehensive PHSE programme throughout the School, teaching our children about important issues such as friendships, online safety and mental health and well-being.
Upon joining Teesside High School, all pupils become members of one of three Houses: Cleveland, Victoria and Woodside. They remain members of these houses throughout their time in the Prep School, and retain their house when they enter the Senior School. House competitions give pupils the chance to mix with friends in other year groups, supporting each other through Choir or Public Speaking competitions, to name but a few.
