Durham UK


Seeped in history, Durham School’s mission is to provide its students with a complete education; one which instils in them an aspiration for achievement, a respect for others and a confidence for life.

The three pillars of Durham School which support this mission and so provide an environment where pupils can explore, make mistakes, learn and grow are:

  • Academic challenge which gives students a lifelong appetite for learning.
  • Pastoral care to provide our students with emotional, moral and spiritual strength.
  • Co-curricular opportunities which enrich and develop the individual, and foster leadership, collaboration and teamwork.
  • We do this by nurturing and supporting our students to become:
  • Thinkers who can understand, research, evaluate and create, both collaboratively and independently.
  • We do this by nurturing and supporting our students to become:
  • Individuals who are morally sound, emotionally resilient, reflective and effective communicators.
  • We do this by nurturing and supporting our students to become:
  • Adults who act with responsibility, humility and kindness and are ready to make a positive contribution to society.

A traditional British boarding school with a modern international community, Durham School encourages pupils to take full advantage of everything a busy, co-educational school has to offer, living life to the full as part of a community in which the individual flourishes.


  • Excellent pastoral care ensures pupils are known as individuals and challenged to develop their talents.
  • Houses create a sense of belonging that roots pupils to the School.


  • Faithful to its Cathedral foundation but respectful of the beliefs of others, collective worship and reflection that builds the community. 
  • Its location in the city centre enhances pupils’ learning through its well-established relationship with Durham University. 


  • A full and rounded curriculum encourages pupils to aspire and have the confidence to succeed.
  • An inclusive ethos provides academic challenge for all abilities
  • A full and varied programme challenges pupils to develop all aspects of their lives on the sports’ pitch, on stage, and elsewhere.
  • Healthy competition both within the School and outside provides opportunities to learn how to fail and how to succeed.
