Greenhaugh Primary School is situated in the beautiful North Tyne Valley, in a very rural location and because of this we benefit from lots of outdoor space and a lovely natural surroundings for our children to explore and enjoy.
​As part of the small rural community of Tarset, we like to involve the school and the children as much as possible in local activities and the friendly local community. We recently invited the community to our school to take part in the Jubilee Celebrations - it was lovely to see so many people!
We have educational visits to the historic market town of Hexham, where we take the children swimming and also enjoy productions at the Queens Hall, and over the years children have enjoyed a private tour of the ancient Hexham Abbey.

Kielder Water and Forest is situated locally. This is such a fantastic place for the children to go, either to explore nature in the forest, see the red squirrels or learn about the industrial side of the forest, with a talk and a tour given by the Forestry Commission about planting and harvesting the trees.

The Tarset website is a great source of information about the locality and it gives a real feel of what it is like here in the Tarset Valley. www.tarset.co.uk
