At Durham School Dubai we recognise that selecting the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent can make.

Durham School UK

Durham School is one of the UK’s oldest schools, with a 600-year tradition of academic, sporting and cultural excellence.

Durham School’s history stretches back centuries, certainly to 1414 and the re-organisation of the school by Thomas Langley, and some would claim even further back to the monastic settlement on Lindisfarne that came to Durham City 900 years ago. For more information see
