Durham High



We take activities beyond the classroom just as seriously as lessons. Our extra-curricular programme is planned to suit all tastes and talents. Staff are on hand to guide girls’ choices, encouraging them to broaden their horizons, without taking on too much.

Lunch times are always busy with so many activities for girls to fit in, while remembering to make time to visit the dining room. Seniors may be rushing off to a choral practice or netball, whilst others are selling cakes for charity or preparing tents for an expedition. After school clubs are just as numerous, with Art, Drama and several sports on offer. Other activities such as Debating, Greek, and science clubs also compete for girls’ attention.  

Extra-curricular provision is excellent throughout the school…the scale of the extra-curricular programme strongly enriches pupils’ educational experience, with ample opportunities to participate in a wide range of activities - ISI Report 2015

Our busy programme of visits, workshops and study days supports the curriculum and we also have an extensive range of trips for all ages including residentials in Junior House. Older girls can undertake charitable work for an orphanage in Sri Lanka or go on overseas sports tours, ski trips and cultural visits to France and Spain.
