Durham School is one the country's oldest and can trace its origins back to the monastic communities of Lindisfarne and Iona. The view of Durham City from the Chapel is well worth the 98 steps. Unfortunately for now we can only offer a Virtual View.
Durham School Chapel was completed and dedicated in 1926 as a memorial to the 104 Old Dunelmians who died in conflict during World War I. The names of these individuals, along with the names of those who died in World War II are inscribed on the pillars in the nave of the Chapel. Although a place of memorial, the Chapel is a very positive and peaceful space. It sits atop Chapel Hill and commands a unique view of the Cathedral.
Durham is one of the country’s oldest schools and can trace its origins back to the monastic communities of Lindisfarne and Iona. It was refounded in 1414 by Bishop Thomas Langley and moved to its current site in 1844. A modern coeducational day/boarding school, Durham School is home to over 600 pupils aged 3-18, and so guests wishing to see more than the Chapel are asked to join a tour, starting at the School Chapel at the times below.
