Activities and Clubs


Our weekly activity programme provides all students at Durham School with the opportunity to cultivate new or existing interests, making new friends and developing a broad range of practical and personal skills.  All our staff are involved in the delivery of the activities programme and they enjoy sharing their interests and enthusing students to participate.  Some activities are student led and we also engage a team of volunteers and specialists where required.

We encourage all our pupils to participate in a range of activities which suits him or her and ensure they have the opportunity to reach their full potential.  Pupils are expected to demonstrate a commitment to activities they have elected to participate in.  The activities take place at lunchtime and after school.
