From Day One in the Senior Department, pupils are directed to excellence in their work and humanity in their relationships by a caring and well-trained staff. They become strong individuals with an unassailable academic core and a broad hinterland encompassing drama to Duke of Edinburgh, poetry to politics, athletics to art. In short, they become fully alive. A door opens into Senior House. The whole world beckons.
Every pupil at Durham High School is a unique individual, with their own special gifts and talents. It is our challenge to help discover and realise themselves. By offering opportunities to enjoy success in different areas, including public speaking, leadership and entrepreneurship, we help to broaden horizons and develop self-confidence and ambition.
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?
