What the school says...

Durlston Court is an extremely happy school, providing a caring environment in which each individual is truly valued. High expectations underpin all that is undertaken. A dedicated, well-qualified teaching staff provides a first class academic education, whilst a vast wealth of extra curricular opportunities helps children to develop their talents to the full. Praise, encouragement and firm, but sensitive, discipline instil traditional values and a sense of purpose and worth. ...Read more

What the parents say...

Fantastic school. We have four children, they are all different. Durlston has treated them as individuals, encouraging them to achieve the best that they can. One attained the highest CE mark for Biology at Bradfield College, another a sports scholarship. Sport is played every day. Pupils are happy and polite. Great SATS results - despite being non-selective. My youngest loves The Secret Garden and The Den. Came number 46 in The Times Top Prep School list in 2014. I would recommend anyone go and have a look, decide for yourself.

We love this school ! It runs like Swiss railways ! I moved my children from a local private school and wow what a difference ! excellent pastoral care and great traditional teaching and values. Children are exposed to many new things in clubs and there is areal culture of children working together academically but being individual in their clubs and musical interests.You never hear parents in coffee shops moaning about this school unlike its neighbours...put your child here they will thrive in a happy secure environment. !

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.
