Our staff are skilled practitioners, each with a passion for the Foundation.
Our teachers and coaches love their subject or sport and have a burning desire to enthuse the pupils they teach.
Creating inspiring lessons which expose pupils to a range of media and learning styles, they aim to help young people of all abilities to develop learning habits that will not only lead them to exam success but stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives.
As well to their own subject specialisms, our staff bring a diverse range of talents and contacts to the Foundation which helps enrich the life of the school - from arranging special trips, sporting events or learning challenges to staging concerts, exhibitions and school plays.
Our support staff strive to provide the best experience for our pupils and staff. They are an essential part of our schools’ operations and cover roles across estates, administration, IT, finance, marketing, department technicians, and learning support, to name a few.
We have a commitment to staff development and our staff enjoy a CPD programme designed to allow them to develop within the classroom and outside of it.
All our staff are members of the DCSF family.
"Having worked at three other schools in my 11-year career, I’ve found my ideal role as Head of Science. Durham School fosters a challenging and rewarding workplace, one which I thrive on.
The school feels like a home from home, with the students being part of the house system.
"The staff are lovely and always willing to lend a hand when required. The students are incredible in their approach to learning, confidence and friendliness."
Mrs Traci Moore, Head of Science
