Book now for our Pre-Prep and Prep Open Day

We make sure that each child has the opportunity to represent Durham High School in a variety of sports. Our Prep teams have a busy fixture list, competing against all the local independent schools in hockey, netball, swimming, rounders, cross-country, athletics and tennis. Such is the impressive standard our pupils achieve, that they regularly return home as tournament winners, proud to show off their medals and trophies.

House cross-country competitions and the Swimming Gala are fiercely contested and the sporting year culminates in Sports Days for pupils of all ages – Nursery included!

It is because pupils achieve such high standards in sport, that so many are selected for Netball Satellite Academies and JDC hockey development.

"School teams of all ages are successful in a variety of local and national competitions, and pupils represent regional teams in a range of sports." 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?
