Welcome to the Bow, Durham School website!
Bow is a very happy place where, in a caring, family atmosphere, children are given every encouragement to reach their potential. We have high expectations for all children and there are numerous opportunities to succeed, whether it is in the classroom, on the sports field, playing a musical instrument, or performing on stage. At Bow we value every child’s achievements, no matter how small, and as educators in the broadest sense of the word, we put great emphasis on values such as respect, loyalty, tolerance, friendship and good manners.
I believe that Bow offers a wonderful environment for children to spend their formative years. With dedicated, caring staff and excellent facilities, children at Bow are able to work and play happily in safe and secure surroundings. This is achieved within a clear Christian framework, although we also welcome children from other faiths.
Everybody at Bow is delighted that the opportunities that have been available to boys in the Durham area for over a hundred years are now available also to the region’s girls. I invite you and your son or daughter to come and meet us, the staff and the children at Bow. You can be assured of a very warm welcome.
Mr. Nick Baird, Headmaster of Bow, Durham School
Although my wife and I would like to take some of the credit, most belongs to the teachers and the school. Bow is not just a school it is a community, where both pupils and parents are made to feel part of the family."
