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.

The School was originally situated on Palace Green, adjacent to the World Heritage Site of Durham Cathedral in the heart of Durham City, but was moved to its present magnificent site on the other side of the River Wear in 1844.

Durham offers a high-quality education to all its girls and boys who can be day students or, at the Secondary School, boarders. The School has a particularly high reputation for academic studies, music, sport and drama.
