Rift House Primary School is situated in West Hartlepool and strives to provide a vibrant, stimulating, exciting and high quality centre of learning for our children, their families and the whole community.

Our dedicated staff work hard to ensure that each and every child, regardless of circumstance, acquires a thorough knowledge of basic skills – the basic skills which enable all of our children to become lifelong learners who are very well equipped to succeed at secondary school, gain entry to further education and ultimately find fulfilling employment.

Mr. D. A. Turner



'This is a good school which is improving rapidly because every member of staff ensures every child has the best possible opportunity to achieve well academically, personally, physically and creatively. Pupils thrive in a welcoming, positive, caring environment to become confident, young people who want to learn.'
