At Durham High School we have a truly dedicated team of professionals with the ability to inspire and motivate children to become independent, successful, and enthusiastic learners. Our community is a joyful one, where success is celebrated, and children and staff are happy to come to school and embrace the challenges of new learning.

When your child is in our school they are taught through inspirational, inclusive teaching and learning opportunities. They learn to apply their literacy, numeracy and life skills from age 3 to 11 and thus achieve great success both academically and pastorally. Music, PE and languages are taught by specialists throughout Junior House and the older pupils have the fantastic opportunity of Science lessons in the Senior House labs.

When pupils leave our Prep Department in Year 6, they are very well-prepared to transition into the Senior Department seamlessly where they continue to thrive.

"Pupils develop excellent knowledge, skills and understanding across all areas of learning." ISI Report, October 2022.

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?
