Durham High School for Girls

Farewell Hall South Road Durham Co. Durham DH1 3TB

“Durham High School was one of the first schools in the North East of England to take girls’ education seriously and we are proud to continue that tradition today; we seek to develop the potential of every girl in all areas of life. We encourage academic excellence and a lifelong love of learning, but we also place great value on personal development in creative arts, in sport, in community service and in leadership.”
