Durham High School was judged as ‘Excellent’ across all areas, the highest possible grading, by the latest inspection carried out by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). The report highlighted our pupils’ ‘excellent’ progress and achievement, their ‘outstanding’ attitudes to learning and their ‘strong moral awareness’.
Nurturing and developing girls is at the forefront of everything we do, and while there are standard entry points to the school, your daughter is welcome to join us at any stage from age 3-18. With up to 30 free hours weekly until her 5th birthday, why would you want to go anywhere else?
We have been a school for girls since 1884 and we need young women, who are going to make things happen, to continue that tradition today. Register your interest now and a member of our Admissions team will be in touch.
Examination, interview and school report.
Pupils complete two papers: an English paper consisting of a short, imaginative writing piece on a given theme; and a verbal, non-verbal, quantitative and spatial reasoning paper.
No extra preparation is necessary.
Entrance Examinations, interview, school reference and GCSE results.
The Sixth Form Entrance Examinations take place in November. Scholarships and bursaries are awarded following GCSE results.
