The Performing Arts
Music, art and drama flourish at Bow, with all pupils taking part to a greater or lesser extent. Participation is our watchword and the opportunities are many. Well over half of the pupils learn an individual musical instrument and the choir and jazz band are lively groups. A newly established "fiddle" group is providing much enjoyment and we are looking to expand the music-making as much as possible. Two dramatic productions are performed each year and pupils can take part in speech and drama classes after school if they wish.
"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!
