"I joined Durham School in Year 12 and my time there was an experience I will remember throughout my life. I made great friends who I value tremendously. The opportunities on offer at Durham School are fantastic and I benefited greatly from them. Furthermore, I believe that Durham School made me into the more intelligent, athletic and dedicated person that I am now. "
