Durham School

Day & Boarding School (Age 3-18)

Founded 1414

Admissions Procedure

Durham School is fully co-educational from age 3 to 18 and joining Durham School could not be easier. In the first instance we recommend a visit to meet with the Headmaster, see the facilities, meet the pupils and staff and take a tour of our beautiful school site. Bow, Durham School, our Preparatory School, is situated only half a mile from the Senior School and Mrs Cathrae, our Admissions Officer, can arrange a full guided tour for you. Perhaps you may wish to visit both sites to fully appreciate the full Durham School experience from age 3 through to 18. There are a variety of visit options and whichever one you choose, you can be certain of a warm welcome.

‘Durham School has and continues to supply top cricketers, like Gordon Muchall, who made his first-class debut in 2002, to Durham County Cricket Club. Our close association with Durham School has also seen top class cricket coaching delivered by members of the team to help progress further these talented school cricketers. Emirates Durham ICG is not just home to Durham County Cricket Club, it is also home to rising local talent here in Durham.’
