Let the fun begin! It’s Sedgefield’s 46th Mediaeval Fayre on Saturday 21st May
For children and adults alike, Mediaeval Fayre Day is a highlight in Sedgefield’s calendar of events. The excitement begins as the fairground rides start to arrive on Friday morning just as children are going to school! This is the SCA’s biggest event of the year and there are lots of events and activities taking place on the village green as well as in Ceddesfeld Hall and grounds and in St Edmund’s Church.
Call to Arms
It’s a great event for the community but it the needs the community to get involved. organisers are appealing for a bit of help on the day, or in the week leading up to the Fayre. Just one hour pledged will make a real difference, so if you can spare an hour or two to help on the stalls or in the refreshment hall, please get in touch.
Tug of War
We need new teams for the competition and ask that the pubs and local organisations come forward. The rewards will be well worth the effort. A special challenge is being made to seek women’s and young people’s teams. Trophies include best pub and youth teams as well as an overall winner’s prize. Teams can enter on the day or in advance by contacting a committee member.

Award for exceptional results in 2015
Sedgefield Community College has been nationally recognised for its exceptional 2015 performance by the Schools, Students and Teachers network (SSAT). Educational Outcomes data analysis from SSAT has shown that the school is in the top 10% of non-selective schools nationally for high average grades achieved by students, as well as the top 20% nationally for progress made by pupils between key stage 2 results at primary school and key stage 4 results.
The school’s SSAT Educational Outcomes awards will be presented at a regional celebration event. The Chief Executive of SSAT, Sue Williamson, said:
“It’s my great pleasure to commend Sedgefield Community College on their excellent 2015 performance, and to have the opportunity to highlight and share their great work at the SSAT Educational Outcomes celebration evening. I have the privilege of visiting lots of schools and I am always impressed by the creativity of teachers engaging and inspiring their students.
I hope that SSAT’s Educational Outcomes awards will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at Sedgefield Community College. Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT’s mission, so I’m delighted to congratulate Sedgefield Community College on their achievement.”
