About

Houses

Houses are at the very heart of the Durham School community.

Following in the tradition of Durham School UK, we will be having a ‘House’ system in the school.

Oryx, Horse, Gazelle, Falcon, Camel

These houses are vertically streamed, meaning children in Year 1 will have a ‘big sister’ in higher year groups. This not only fosters a family and community feel within the school but also provides additional responsible members of the school to discuss feelings and events with. All the girls will enter a house when arriving at the school and will remain in their house until leaving.

The student leadership structure is built through the house system and allows the girls to follow the school aims and values. Throughout the 3 terms in each academic year there will be 'House' competitions for arts, sports, cooking, drama etc.

Girls can receive House Points for following MARK. Certificates will be given to the ‘MARK Girl of the Week’ celebrating their achievements for one of the areas of MARK. House points build a family feeling and sense of belonging to their houses.

In Upper KS2 and KS3, girls will be able to gain Durham Merits. Durham Merits are for individual successes. Girls can still be awarded house points but merits provide an additional goal to strive for.

  • 100 Merits = Silver Certificate from Mrs Cathrae
  • 200 Merits = Gold certificate from Miss Whay
  • 300 Merits = Durham School for Girls pin for their lapel
