Welcome from Andy Byers
Framwellgate School Durham is a great place to teach and to learn.
I was delighted to be appointed to the post of Headteacher here in September 2017 and am proud to be working alongside our staff, students, and parents.
The school we are building together is based on the values of honesty and integrity; on the quality of our relationships; on respect and empathy for others; and on a genuine passion for learning.
We’ll do our very best to help our students be the best they can be and achieve the very best exam results they can. But our curriculum and teaching are about so much more. We want our students to develop friendships for life and to become caring and compassionate young adults with a range of interests and the skills they need to adapt to a changing world. And we want them to be happy. That’s not a bad aim for a school is it?
We won’t get everything right but, like our students, we will keep trying to learn and improve. I would be delighted if you and your child chose to join us on our exciting journey. This website offers a snapshot of what we are like, so please contact us to arrange a visit.
