Hetton School is a coeducational secondary school located in Hetton-le-Hole in the City of Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, England.[1]

Established in 1912,[2] it is a community school administered by Sunderland City Council. The school admits pupils mainly from Easington Lane Primary School, Eppleton Academy, Hetton Primary School and Hetton Lyons Primary School.[3]

Hetton School offers GCSEs and Cambridge Nationals as programmes of study for pupils. Most graduating students go on to attend Headways Sixth Form, a sixth form provision offered by a consortium of secondary schools (including Hetton School) and Sunderland College.[4]

A new school building is being constructed on the same site and is due to be completed in September 2016.[5]
