Prep: Durham School: independent day and boarding school in the North East of England for boys and girls

Go direct into prep or move up from pre prep at the end of Year 2.

Girls and boys can be admitted directly into the Preparatory Department, although the majority of our pupils move up from the Pre-prep department at the end of Year 2.

Form 3 (Year 3) is a transition year where pupils spend 50% of their week with their form-teacher for English, Mathematics and Humanities. They move to specialists in Science, French, Art, Music, I.T., P.S.H.E. and Sport during the course of the rest of their weekly timetable.  In Form 4 ,5 and 6, pupils move to different teachers for subjects across the curriculum range – English, Mathematics, Science, Geography, History, Religious Education, I.T., P.S.H.E., Music, Art, Latin (in Forms 5 and 6) and Sport. Not only does this allow pupils to experience a wide range of teachers, they also learn to take responsibility for their own organisation and their belongings. Both of these factors aid the smooth transition into the Senior School world.
