Welcome to Rockcliffe First School - "Laying the Foundations for Life"

For over one hundred years, Rockcliffe has been an innovative and exciting place to learn.

Overlooking the sea, with views of dramatic skies and boats on the horizon, Rockcliffe's ethos comes from its stunning location, rich heritage and place at the heart of its community.

Rockcliffe First School is a North Tyneside Learning Trust School, catering for children from 3 to 9 years (Nursery to Year 4).

We have a published admissions number of 45, with children entering two small Reception classes.

Despite achieving consistently high academic results, we believe that the job of an excellent school is much broader and strive to help our pupils become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. Therefore, our mission is ‘To Lay the Foundations for Life’.

In order to help us achieve this, we aim to offer:

  • a broad, dynamic and challenging curriculum which allows us to be the best we can
  • a safe and inclusive community in which we all feel welcome
  • a rich creative environment in which everyone will flourish
