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 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.

"Our son was delighted with the level of learning support he received. His teachers encouraged him not to use his dyslexia as an excuse for under-achieving but equally gave him extra time to complete his work when necessary. Whilst at Durham School our son enjoyed numerous extra-curricular activities - rugby, cricket, ski trip, camping at Kielder, school drama productions, walking Bonnie (the former Housemasters family's dog) and of course, supporting the 1st XV at Twickenham!
