Make A Gift

Today's pupils benefit from the encouragement and past contributions of our many benefactors. Unlike many schools, Durham does not have any historic financial endowment, and every facility from which our pupils benefit is the product of the philanthropy of previous generations. 

We hope that the current generation will continue that tradition.  Your donation will support our continuing commitment to providing excellent facilities, and to widening access as far as we are able. We invite you to contribute to help future generations gain “Confidence for Life.”
