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 Registrar, 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.

"School House has done a lot for me in my first year. It has given me a place to spend my time and relax as well as get something to eat, instead of sitting outside or in a classroom all break and lunchtime. It has also helped me massively with my work because I know I can get advice and support from my tutor and Housemaster."
