Developing The Durham School Community
Each person’s connection to Durham School is unique to them, but what we all have in common is a passion for Durham School and its pupils, now and in the future.
The Durham School Community is a thriving network of pupils, parents, ODs and other friends of the School that come together to support each other, current pupils and future generations of Dunelmians. Whether you are a parent at a Friends’ BBQ, an OD coaching a cricket side, or a 6th Former sharing your love of science with a pupil at Bow. Everyone has a role to play to inspire our pupils.
Together, we are Durham School.
Developing our facilities and programme
Critically, we need the support of everyone in our community to help to develop both our facilities, and to help us open the doors of Durham School by providing bursaries to those who would benefit from a Durham School education, but cannot afford to take their place here.
We are here today as a school because of people like you. With our clear vision for the future our goals are clear.
By supporting Durham School you are part of a philanthropic community helping to deliver a world class education in the heart of the North East of England.
Giving more than money…
We are looking for ODs, parents (past and present) and friends of Durham School who are willing to share their experiences of professional life to help other ODs and present pupils.
We will also be building up a peer-to-peer professional network for all members of our community – we want to bring together industry sectors and disciplines and meet regularly to share ideas, make contacts, facilitate career development and create business opportunities.
Calling all ODs…
In July 2019 we are calling around 1800 ODs to ask for their support with developments around School. More details are available on the OD Website
