Durham School, like any other school must never stand still. Fundraising though the Development Office plays a central role in our drive for excellence and diversity and helps ensure that a Durham education continues to provide young people with confidence for life.
Fundraising is not all we do, and is just one of the many reasons we keep in touch with the Durham community. Friends, ODs, current and former parents, and the pupils themselves all make a huge contribution, both in terms of gifts of time, experience and resources.
We, as an institution, do not run our finances at a significant surplus. Indeed, school fees alone do not cover the total cost of a pupil’s time here. It is the generosity of today’s Durham School community that helps enhance and enrich their learning both inside and outside the classroom.
I take great pride in what our School has achieved over the past 602 years and I am delighted to head up a team that acts as a conduit developing closer ties with our ODs, parents and friends. If you have any questions, no matter how small, please do not hesitate to contact me; I would be delighted to talk.
