Years 3 and 4 are based in their own building on Longfield Road. Whilst Durston is set across three separate buildings, there is a clear progression of pupils’ attainment in all areas of the curriculum, carefully built on their previous learning. This ensures a seamless path throughout their journey at Durston House.

Lessons are taught primarily by the Form Teachers, with specialist teachers for French, Computer Science, Art, PSHME, Study Skills, PE and Games. Over the next two years pupils advance their skills and competencies across all areas of the curriculum, developing into capable, motivated and independent learners.

“Durston House has helped them to discover their talents, given them independence in a nurturing and caring environment and enabled them to develop good social, teamwork and study skills along the way.”
—Parent

Junior School is a buoyant and busy place with pupils taking greater responsibility and autonomy for their learning, supported by their teachers and in partnership with parents. There are extensive opportunities to become involved in all areas of school life from the exciting Enrichment Programme to singing in the Junior Choir, representing the school in sports fixtures and performing in the annual Junior School production. The boys’ first exciting experience of a residential trip away takes place in Year 4 at PGL.
