Durham High School for Girls is celebrating the glowing report received this week following an inspection by the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate.

The inspectors’ main findings were that ‘the school provides an excellent atmosphere for learning that is particularly suited to able girls, enabling them to achieve highly in both academic subjects and a wide range of sporting, musical and other activities’.

Headteacher Lynne Renwick said: “We are particularly delighted that the inspection team judged as ‘excellent’ the contribution of teaching, the quality of the pupils’ achievements and learning and our pastoral care.”

The report comes as the school topped GCSE and A-level league tables in the North East.
