The popular academy joined Laidlaw Schools Trust in summer 2017 and is the second Sunderland school to do so, following nearby Academy 360 where the majority of pupils go to after leaving South Hylton Primary Academy.

The academy is home to over 330 pupils aged between two and 11 drawn from the surrounding Pennywell, Highfield, Pallion and Ford Estate areas, with 34 staff teaching children from nursery years upwards.

South Hylton Primary’s last three Ofsted reports have all rated the academy as “Good”, with inspectors praising the high quality of care and support for pupils, excellent behaviour and pride young people take in their school.
