125 Years of Durham High School For Girls

Beautifully designed and produced, 125 Years of Durham High School For Girls tells the fascinating story of the School's original foundation and developments through two world wars, and eventual move from the environs of the Cathedral to a new home at Farewell Hall, continuing to the present day. A lively, informative text and over seventy specially selected pictures brings past and present to life to create a lasting souvenir of this milestone anniversary, to be treasured by all who love this remarkable institution.

'My recent visit to Durham High School to open the magnificent, new Performing Arts Building brought back many memories of my own school days in Leazes House. I remember particularly my first ever performance in the Hut. I was in the Kindergarten and I played ''The Little Red Hen''. I know many of you will have your own memories and the school would very much appreciate the chance of sharing in them; could I therefore encourage you to join in with me to share what I believe is an important venture – celebrating 125 years of Durham High School for Girls educating the young women of the County.'
