Continuous

Continuous

As a private school in Durham our education from Nursery to Sixth Form allows for continuity of care and ease of transition between key stages. In addition, Juniors enjoy access to Senior facilities such as tennis courts and laboratories.

Quality

Quality

We have small classes, superb facilities and specialist teachers who are prepared to ‘go the extra-mile’ for their pupils. After that, it’s no wonder that pupils succeed at Durham High School.

Caring

Caring

Excellent relationships are at the centre of all we do, with a caring, family ethos throughout. For instance, all our pupils are known well to each other and by their teachers.

Aspirational

Aspirational

We have high expectations, both in and out of the classroom. As a result, pupils leave Durham High School as well-rounded, independent and confident young adults, with top-flight academic qualifications.

Balanced

Balanced

Academic results are not everything. Above all, we take seriously our role in encouraging pupils to develop leadership skills, resilience and confidence.

Our Community

From Parents and Friends and community outreach, to charity work and the Old Girls’ Association, for instance, there is always something for you to lend your hand to.

When it comes to it, “Keep in touch” is a genuine invitation. In other words, we would love to hear from you.
