Looking for the right school

Choosing the right school for your studies can be a daunting prospect. Which one is best for me? What is offered beyond the classroom? What opportunities will be provided during lockdown and where will they take me after?

In the past year, Durham School pupils achieved the following:

  • 55% of leavers went to Russell Group universities
  • 80% achieved A*-B at A level
  • 49% achieved 7-9 at GCSE
  • Top 3% nationally for pupils’ academic progress

It is not only academic success you will enjoy at Durham School. Our sporting and co-curricular activities are unrivalled in a co-educational day and boarding setting in our region.

Here are only some of the activities that we have been able to maintain whilst learning from home:

  • Duke of Edinburgh
  • Society Lectures
  • Fitness Classes
  • Combined Cadet Force
  • Chapel Choir
  • Mountain Biking Club
  • Language Film Club
  • Durham Eye Newspaper
  • Live Fitness Sessions
  • STEM Workshops

…and there are many more. At Durham School, we understand that the extra-curricular activities are essential in shaping your school experience. This term, our brilliant staff have dedicated their time and efforts to successfully running the activities virtually during lockdown, keeping pupils engaged in their hobbies and connected with their friends. The pandemic will not deter us from helping our pupils develop into young, mindful adults who have the confidence to excel in anything they choose to do.
