Durham School welcomes pupils of all ages from overseas and we greatly value the richness and the diversity that they bring to our community. Currently we have 41 international pupils from 17 different countries.
Living and learning in a completely different country (often with major cultural differences to cope with as well) can be a daunting experience but we generally find that our overseas pupils settle quickly into their new life. They are helped in this by the friendliness of the community as a whole (and of the boarding Houses in particular), by the helpfulness of our boarding staff and by the support of our excellent English as an Additional Language Department (EAL) whose input goes well beyond the mere teaching of English.
For further information on any aspect of international boarding please contact our Admissions Officer, Mrs Eileen Cathrae at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 0191 386 4783 Ext. 2268.

"School House has done a lot for me in my first year. It has given me a place to spend my time and relax as well as get something to eat, instead of sitting outside or in a classroom all break and lunchtime. It has also helped me massively with my work because I know I can get advice and support from my tutor and Housemaster."
Richard James, Pupil in School House
