“Fundraising through the Development Office plays a central role in our drive for excellence and diversity, and helps ensure that a Durham Cathedral Schools Foundation education continues to provide young people with confidence for life.

"Fundraising is not all we do, and is just one of the many reasons we keep in touch with the Durham community. Friends, ODs, current and former parents, and the pupils themselves all make a huge contribution, through gifts of time, experience, and resources.

We, as an institution, do not run our finances at a significant surplus. Indeed, school fees alone do not cover the total cost of a pupil’s time here. It is the generosity of today’s Durham Cathedral Schools Foundation community that helps enhance and enrich learning both inside and outside the classroom.  

"I take great pride in what our School has achieved over the past six centuries and I am delighted to head up a team that acts as a conduit developing closer ties with our ODs, parents and friends. 

"If you have any questions, no matter how small, please do not hesitate to contact me; I would be delighted to talk with you about how you can add to the rich and diverse history of the Foundation.”
