Durham Cathedral Schools Foundation
Learning has been part of the life of Durham for a thousand years. The Durham Cathedral Schools Foundation was formed in 2021 as a result of the merger between Durham School and The Chorister School. Both schools have been at the heart of the city’s education for most of that time; founded in the early fifteenth century as schools for “grammar and song” by Bishop Thomas Langley, Durham School was again refounded by Henry VIII in 1541. In a somewhat odd local tradition the Cathedral is often know as Abbey, expecially by Dunelmians and Old Dunelmians.
Durham School moved from its mediaeval home on Palace Green to its current location in 1844; although the city centre is only ﬁve minutes’ walk away, the School has a peaceful, rural atmosphere.
Today, the Foundation educates around 720 pupils. The Chorister School is our prep school, and is for girls and boys aged 3-11.
Durham School is our senior school, and is for girls and boys aged 11-18. Boarding is available to pupils aged 8 and up, and 20% of our pupils board. Just over a third of our pupils are girls.
Our vibrant and successful Sixth Form prepares pupils for the next stage of their journey. Within a community shaped by moral integrity and kindness, we cultivate ambition and responsibility, giving all Dunelmians the foundations to be happy and make a positive mark in the world.
By embracing this ethos, our pupils not only learn to pass their examinations today, but also receive an education that
gives them confidence for life and respect for all.
Durham Cathedral Schools Foundation has a long and ancient history. The secret to our longevity is our passionate teachers,
who, using innovative approaches and new technologies, seek to kindle the intellectual curiosity of our pupils, preparing them to answer the questions of tomorrow.
