Welcome to

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:

Quality Provision

We will provide exceptional curriculum opportunities, learning experiences and personal support and guidance.

Outstanding Outcomes

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.

Positive Relationships

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.
