At Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary School the staff, academy councillors and school community are fully invested in developing each pupil to their full potential. We value their progression and celebrate their successes and individuality. This investment does not stop when our pupils leave the school, they are family forever.
In this section we will be celebrating former pupils’ achievements and successes. Please check in often to see the impact that our pupils continue to make in the wider community and beyond.
I am currently studying Theology and Religion at York St. John’s University, and am considering going into a career in teaching once I have finished my studies here. Stanhope Barrington helped me get here by a great standard of teaching and support which allowed me to go on to achieve my GCSE’s, and then A-Levels to allow me to get into university to pursue something I enjoy.

Esther left Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary School in 2020. She sounds amazing as part of this wonderful choir! Well done.
|A Wonderful Surprise|
Mrs Stidwell and Mrs Cross had a wonderful surprise when Thiseas and his mum (Marianne) popped into school to say hello at the beginning of March! Thiseas now lives in Germany and is doing his GCSEs this year. He goes to school with children from lots of different countries around the world. Thiseas talked about his memories of our school and how much it meant to him. He had lovely memories of the teachers who touched his life and Mrs Cross and Mum reminisced about the day he fell off the climbing frame and broke his arm!
It was great to see him again and we are very grateful that he took the time to come to visit us.
We were delighted to hear that Bonnie has been awarded Pupil of the Term at Wolsingham Comprehensive School. We are very proud of you Bonnie, well done!
|Young Heroes: Olivia and Elizabeth|
Olivia and Elizabeth left Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary School in 2017. Having both been mini-buddies and buddies at Stanhope, they continued to develop at Wolsingham School as Anti-bullying ambassadors. They have made such an impact that in September 2019, they were awarded with the Young Heroes Award from Durham Constabulary. Well done!
