skip to main content


Welcome to your special place on the website. You can browse the site for general information, keep up to date with news and events as well as future developments and familiarise yourself with all that Durham School offers from our Early Years Department through to the Sixth Form. 

Parents can login to the Parent Portal at the Learning Gateway which will allow you to access your son or daughter's profile and to communicate with teaching staff as well as House staff regarding their progress. 

Pupils can login in to their special Pupil Portal at the Learning Gateway, allowing them to access work schedules, examination notifications and learning links as well as to communicate electronically with teachers. 

The Friends of Durham School would love to hear from parents and grandparents (aunties and uncles too!) so why not take a look at what they are planning and get in touch with your thoughts and ideas. They are also always keen to welcome new committee members too!

Each House has its own page and will add various downloadable documents to keep you up to date. There is also a section on Inter-House competitions so you will be able to join in with all the friendly Inter-House rivalry alongside your son or daughter!

We hope that you all enjoy the website and find it to be an invaluable communication tool and we encourage you to get in touch with your comments and ideas for further improvement. Please email Mrs Nicola McCann, Marketing Director at
