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.

"In less than a term, our daughter gained hugely in confidence and self-esteem and this in turn led to a huge improvement in her standard of work, helped by a very early (within 2 weeks) identification of the need for some learning support, which was implemented and within only a matter of weeks showing massive benefits The engagement in House musical activities, too, helped her build her self-assurance. In addition, the opportunities for games offered by the School mean that she has now played hockey for the school (she never achieved that in 8 years at her previous school) and has taken the opportunity to try rowing, a sport not even available previously. All this in only a few weeks!"
