IMPORTANT notice re: Covid-19 school access

We believe that the true value of a British boarding school education is in the whole education each and every child receives – academically, co-curricular and pastorally. By moving our summer term to well-beyond the projected peak period of Covid-19 in the UK, our aim is to have an undisrupted final term of education for this academic year. Our Summer Term will start on June 1st, 2020

Meanwhile, Durham School is playing its part in supporting the Covid-19 emergency response by opening its doors to children of key workers who have no other childcare options.

We are also open to vulnerable pupils where school is the only option of support.

Online teaching is being provided to all our pupils to enable them to access a full education during this challenging time.We are grateful to all parents for their support at this time.

Full guidance on which children can access school childcare can be found here
