Ask any of Durham School’s boarders and they will tell you that boarding in the 21st century is fun! The School’s House system and superb facilities are such that pupils soon come to regard their House as their second home run by friendly, experienced and caring staff dedicated to ensuring that all the pupils in their care are happy and well looked after.
The School’s evening and weekend programme are packed with fun and exciting excursions, activities, sports and social time as well as allocated time for ‘prep’ or homework which is, of course, an important part of the programme. Durham City and all its shops and amenities are only a five minutes’ walk away from the boarding houses.
Boarders at Durham School fall into three categories: full boarders, weekly boarders, and occasional boarders. Boarders are accommodated in our four homely boarding Houses – the boys in Poole House, School House, and The Caffinites, and the girls in Pimlico House. All boarding houses also have a number of day pupils.
