skip to main content


It is 'our people' that make us special. Durham School staff are all skilled practitioners, each with a passion for Durham School.

Our teachers and coaches love their subject or sport and have a burning desire to enthuse the pupils they teach.

Creating inspiring lessons which expose pupils to a range of media and learning styles, they aim to help young people of all abilities to develop learning habits which will not only lead them to exam success but stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives.

As well as their own subject specialisms, our staff bring a diverse range of talents and contacts to Durham School which help enrich the life of the school - from arranging special trips, sporting events or learning challenges to staging concerts, exhibitions and school plays.

We have a commitment to staff development and all of our teachers enjoy a CPD programme designed to allow them to develop within the classroom and outside of it. A number of our staff have moved on from us to senior roles in other schools both in the UK and overseas.

All of our staff are members of the Durham School family.


"Having worked at 3 other schools in my 11 year career, I feel like I have found my comfort zone. Working as Head of Science at Durham School is a challenging, yet rewarding lifestyle choice, and one which I thrive on. The school feels like a home from home, with the students being part of the house system. The staff are lovely and always willing to lend a hand when required, and the students are incredible in their approach to learning, confidence and friendliness. The days are productive, they fly by and I never get that sinking feeling anymore when my alarm goes off! I have to mention the beauty of the place too – even after working here for two years, I still have to take a moment to look at the views from the Chapel once in a while. Just stunning." Mrs Traci Moore, Head of Science
