Graded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted in 2012, we are a creative, vibrant school with a strong emphasis on developing the whole child.  We are proud of our creative curriculum and have recently been awarded the Artsmark Platinum award.  Attainment and progress are strong across our school and our pupils take pride in their achievements. 


At Stobhillgate staff, pupils, families and governors work together to form a strong and supportive learning community.  We all love our school and strive to make Stobhillgate the very best it can be.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school soon.

Thank you for visiting us!

Welcome to Stobhillgate First School

As the name suggests, our school is situated in the Stobhill area of Morpeth, just behind Eleventh Avenue.  We share a site with Morpeth Children's Centre, Collingwood School and Media Arts College, 121 Waves Swimming Pool and Benmar House.  The school first opened in 1954.


Stobhillgate is a one form entry school with extensive and well maintained grounds.  It is a larger than average first school with flexible and stimulating teaching space as well as a separate Nursery Unit.  The school has undergone some extensive refurbishment work in recent years which has resulted in additional teaching space, a nurture/intervention room, library and ICT suite.  The computer suite provides our pupils with access to up to date computer hardware and software; classrooms are also equipped with laptops and iPads.  The school has a large hall which is well equipped with a range of apparatus and equipment for PE.  The hall is also used for assemblies and school lunches.


We are fortunate to have extensive school grounds.  There is a large playing field as well as attractive, safe play facilities such as our castle and climbing wall.  There is seating and the play surface is painted with games and activities.  Other features of the school are our two wildlife garden areas and our Early Years outdoor learning areas.  We will soon be embarking on developing the school grounds even further through the Forest School initiative so watch this space!


Northumberland County Council is the Admissions Authority for the school.  Our PAN (Pupil Admission Number) for each year group, Reception to Year Four is 30.  Our Nursery Unit can accommodate up to 39 children per session however, we are only offering morning sessions at the moment.
