Spitfire Salutes Coxhoe Primary School

A former pupil of Coxhoe Primary School enjoyed a Spitfire flight today and shared his fun with our children.  Geoff, at 81 years old,  wanted to see his past from the air. The children were delighted and waved enthusiastically. We are looking forward to his visit into school tomorrow to find out more about our school in the past.

Fire Engine!

We were delighted to welcome a fire crew from our local station in Spennymoor this week.  They talked to us all about the risks and the serious consequences of setting small fires on grass or in bins.  They told us all about the wide range of work they do and the career opportunities for all. 

Exploring the fire engine was great fun too!

Summer Fair 2019 

We would like to say a huge thank you to our wonderful PTA, Friends of Coxhoe Primary School, who put on a fantastic summer fair again this year. It was a lovely family event with something to offer everyone. We raised almost £2000 over the Sports Day and Summer Fair.


We would also like to take the opportunity to thank the Fire Service, Jet and Ben with their helper and GT Group Peterlee Brass Band for their contribution too.  The Music certainly added to the atmosphere and the children were fascinated by the emergency services. 

The Sage performance

Wow! What a fantastic experience we have had performing at the Sage! We were chosen to represent all of Durham at the NE Hub Gala. We sang and signed 'Bringing Us Together', played the recorder to 'Hands, Feet and Heart' and finished by singing 'This Is Me'. We thoroughly enjoyed showcasing our talents in front of such a large audience.

The fun did not end there because we made the most out of our visit to Gateshead! We enjoyed some time playing cooperation games, a packed tea, crossed the Millennium Bridge and even an ice cream by the river!

Weardale Adventures

Many of our Year 6 children have recently enjoyed a fun-filled residential visit to Weardale House. they have laughed, climbed, waded, crawled, cried, challenged themselves, sang...

Most importantly, they have developed life skills and created life-long memories.

Some of the exciting activities include rock climbing, mining, canoeing, river walking, high ropes and scavenger hunts. 

High School Musical

Wow! What an amazing performance!

Over 50 Key stage 2 children, attended after school rehearsals to get ready for a show stopping performance of High School Musical Junior! 

We were lucky enough to act, sing and dance on Whitworth Park's sensational stage to over 400 people!  


Some of our very talented choir visited West Cornforth Nursing home to perform a selection of songs.

We enjoyed spending time with the residents, especially when having cupcakes and juice. We look forward to visiting again!
