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.



At Rift House Primary School we aim to be a fully inclusive, positive school where children and adults thrive, individual’s needs are met and every member of the school community reaches their potential.

Mr. D. A. Turner



'Rift House is a strong, cohesive community based upon an effective partnership
between home and school. Leaders work hard to empower and encourage parents
and carers to take a more active role in the education of their children. The school
is – as its mission statement states – an ‘inclusive, reflective and responsive school’
that challenges, inspires and motivates both staff and pupils.'
