Welcome to St. Augustine's 

Our Mission Statement:

"I have come so that they may have life, and life to the full." (John 10:10)

We are a Catholic Academy, in the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle and a member of the Bishop Hogarth Catholic Education Trust.

The current school building moved to a new site in 1986 and our open plan building has spaces for 210 pupils (Reception to Year 6).

There has been a St. Augustine’s School in Darlington since 1876 and we are proud to continue the work of our parish school, where gospel values and Trust virtues underpin all aspects of school life.  At St Augustine's we believe every child is special and unique.  We recognise the importance of educating the "whole" child.  Academic excellence for all children is a key priority but we also nurture and celebrate those special gifts which make every child unique.

Our website is designed to keep our families informed of news and developments in school and to introduce new families to our school community.

We have an excellent and dedicated staff team; highly skilled, compassionate and committed.  Ou Local Governing Body actively support the school.  Together, we are passionate about ensuring children at St Augustine's have a positive and happy experience; make progress in their learning and become confident, successful individuals who want to make a positive contribution to their local and wider community.  Our families are supported and welcomed into all aspects of school life. We work in the spirit of Christian gospel values, in a calm, happy, purposeful atmosphere.

We are happy to share the information on our website and to help with any other enquiries via the ‘Contact Us’ section.

If you would like to find out more about St Augustine's visits are warmly welcomed.
