House Durham


Durham House




I am proud to have inherited a house with a passion for success and the moto which means Strive to succeed.


As Head of Durham house I will continue to strive for this. I will lead by example and aim to create an environment in which students feel secure and engage in excellent learning. Providing a platform for all students within the house to achieve their potential.


Durham House values are very important to me and my expectations as a Head of House are in line with the Harris School values.


These include

Harmonious – Students to be considerate towards each other within a harmonious school environment.

Aspirational – to feel that they can achieve their potential

Responsible – To take responsibility for their own actions

Respectful – To be respectful to one another in our school and in the wider community

Inspirational – To be inspirational to others as the students grow through the school years

Sociable – To enjoy their time in Durham House and form sound relationships.


Before we closed...

Louise E in yr.7 has been very successful in her swimming events.

Alice M in yr.8 has been busy on the family farm with lambing.

Darcy A in yr.7 has been very successful with her cheerleading competition.

Owen B in yr.7did really well contributing to a Q&A section of an assembly recently and is in the top ten for achieving HAPs for yr7.


Below is a poem that I have found to be inspirational to me during the lockdown and I will display it in our Durham notice board when we return.
