An Exciting Partnership
Alasdair MacConachie OBE
Chairman of the Board of Governors,
When the Headmaster mentioned to me that he intended to explore opportunities to promote an international dimension to the Durham School education I could immediately see what an exciting opportunity beckoned. Shortly afterwards I met our colleagues from Infinity Group and was inspired by the energy and vision which was generated.
I am privileged to Chair the Board of Governors of Durham School so know first-hand what an outstanding education is provided. My fellow Governors and I are totally committed to this extraordinary initiative which will see us working with our partners to open schools in carefully selected sites, in many locations around the world.
There is a wonderful opportunity here to develop a truly outstanding international education network and I look forward to seeing the project develop over the next few years.
Durham School is not only one of the oldest schools in Britain, but it is also one with deep-rooted traditions, a rich heritage and one that continues to accord its ethos of a ‘Confidence for Life’ to all of its students.
The partnership between Durham School and Infinity Group ushers in exciting opportunities for everybody who believes in the pursuit of a global vision of outstanding education for all. Under the aegis of Durham Infinity International Schools, the aim is to plan, build and operate schools based on the tried and tested Durham School model.
I look forward to the achievement of many life changing milestones for students around the world, and to sharing our vision and commitment through the establishment of Durham International Schools.
