Prospective Parents’ Evening Thursday 6 October 2016 – 6pm – 8pm

“I have settled in well and made lots of new friends. I can’t wait to see what Durrington has to offer and I am excited to see what challenges lie ahead.”

Choosing a secondary school is a key decision for any family. The experience that children have at this stage of their education will play a big part in shaping their future. We take this responsibility very seriously and work tirelessly to ensure that our students leave school with the best possible opportunities to succeed.

Having achieved our best ever results this summer, marking our 13th year of continuous improvement, we remain both passionate and as committed as ever to ensuring each and every one of our students  achieves their full potential.

Durrington High School  is a vibrant, busy and happy school where relationships between staff, students and parents/carers are key to our success.

We are delighted to invite you to our Prospective Parents’ Evening on Thursday 6 October 2016 from 6pm – 8pm where you will have the opportunity to visit each department and talk to our students and staff. There will be talks in the main hall by Ms Marooney, Headteacher, our Head Boy and Head Girl, and a new year 7 student, at 6.30pm and 7.15pm.

This will be followed by our open mornings where parents / carers and prospective year 7 students have the opportunity to come and see us at work. If you would like to attend an open morning please express interest at Prospective Parents’ Evening or contact the school.
