Durham Johnston Comprehensive School

Crossgate Manor Durham Co. Durham DH1 4SU

“We are a happy, successful and dynamic school at a very exciting time in our history.  Durham Johnston aims to be a school where every child achieves beyond expectations. We want them to leave with the qualifications to open all the doors in the world. We expect Johnstonians to take their place among the best, globally. We work for excellence and equity, and for our young people to have the benefits and advantages that can confer success and prosperity. Johnstonians are recognisable by their determination to succeed, their capacity for hard work and their love of learning in all its forms. As a great school gives students self-knowledge, so Johnston aims to produce self-reflective, confident and articulate young people at ease in the world. We work to make our community safe and welcoming, happy and supportive.  We offer education to meet each student’s needs and give opportunities for leadership and active citizenship.  Johnstonians have an ethic of hard work, public service and global citizenship. We want to be central to the life of Durham City.”
