WEDNESDAY 17TH JANUARY 2018 – SCHOOL IS OPEN AS NORMAL TODAY
Framwellgate School Durham
Everyday, Framwellgate School Durham’s goal of ‘turning potential into performance’ means that students are given opportunities to explore their interests, extend their understanding and demonstrate their talents.
By doing so, they learn to value education and develop important life skills.
As individuals, we expect students to appreciate that learning takes commitment and self-discipline. As members of the school we expect them to respect others and make positive contributions to their community.
We aim to achieve this through commitment to:
We will provide exceptional curriculum opportunities, learning experiences and personal support and guidance.
We will set high standards for academic and personal achievement: our students will have high aspirations, make excellent progress and develop the skills and qualities needed for further study and employment.
We will set high standards of personal conduct and engagement with the school and its wider community. We will be a school students are proud to represent.
"Fram has been part of the fabric of my life for more than 20 years; if I didn't love it here, I wouldn't have stayed. Ultimately it's all about working with great people - staff and students."
"It is a pleasure to be the Headteacher at Framwellgate School Durham. Our school community believes passionately in helping our students be the best they can be, and more. We want our students to work hard and play hard, and reach their potential in every lesson, every day."
"It is an absolute pleasure to work at FSD! Our focus here is to develop a community of passionate and collaborative learners with both staff and students. Wednesday afternoons are dedicated to staff professional development and the impact of this is clear to see across the school."
"As the Chair of Governors I am privileged to work with a team of governors, drawn from a variety of backgrounds. Parents and school staff are represented on the board together with governors appointed according to the skills they offer."
