Our education from Nursery to Sixth Form allows for continuity of care and ease of transition between key stages. Juniors also enjoy access to Senior facilities such as tennis courts and laboratories. Specialist Senior teachers of Modern Languages are able to deliver lessons in Junior House.
With small classes, superb facilities and specialist teachers who are prepared to ‘go the extra-mile’ for their pupils, it’s no wonder that pupils succeed at Durham High.
Excellent relationships are at the centre of all we do at Durham High School. There is a caring, family ethos where all the pupils are known well to each other and by their teachers and are valued as individuals. With our emphasis on charity, pupils are encouraged to look outwards, caring for others who are less fortunate and engaging with important moral issues.
Young people of all faiths or none are welcome at Durham High School and benefit from our Christian ethos. We create opportunities for pupils to explore faith, nurturing spiritual and moral values. One of our aims is that they leave us with a sound moral and spiritual basis for the next stage of their lives.
Academic results are not everything: we take seriously our role in encouraging pupils to develop leadership skills, resilience and confidence. To broaden and develop their interests we offer an impressive range of extra-curricular activities to suit all tastes. Many are involved in sport, music and drama whether they play and perform at an elite level, or participate purely for pleasure.
High expectations, both in and out of the classroom, ensure pupils leave Durham High School as well-rounded, independent and confident young adults, with top-flight academic qualifications. We provide excellent guidance for the next stage of their lives, encouraging them to aim high and believe that they can reach their full potential.
We are proud that we were one of the first schools in the North East to take girls’ education seriously and together, it’s time to change the world again. You in?
