What the school says...
At Bow, Durham School all achievements and successes are valued and encouraged from the youngest pupils in the Badger Nursery through to the Sixth Form in the senior school, whether on the sports field, representing their country, performing on stage, achieving a grading distinction on a musical instrument, participating in an inter-house competition or simply gaining in confidence. The team of caring and committed staff, place the welfare of all their pupils at the very top of their agenda.
The Bow Badger Nursery is part of Durham County Councils Early Years Funding scheme and this means that your child will be entitled to 15 free hours per week in the nursery.
Why not arrange an individual family visit or a taster session for your child, for only by doing so can you really get a good feel for what makes Durham School so special and see for yourself why they are so proud of their 600 years of history and confident about the history yet to be made.
Our children are the most important things in our lives and we know that they are supported and well cared for at The Badger Nursery. Thank you very much, The Holt Family. ...Read more
