Going beyond our best

  • DHS has helped me find myself, by encouraging my work efforts. This has made me the person I am today. As a result I have realised I can achieve anything. I am now a more confident person, thanks to Durrington.

  • Year 9 Parent/Carer Evening – Tuesday 27 February 2018

    Dear Parent / Carer

    It is with pleasure that we invite you to our Year 9 Parent/Carer and Option choices evening on Tuesday 27 February from 4.30 – 7.30pm.

    The evening is particularly important for year 9 as it is at this time of the term that they have to choose which subjects they wish to study in years 10 and 11. The options booklet, explaining the choice of courses that your child can choose from, will be posted home to parent/carers by 9 February. This is to enable parent/carers time to discuss choices with their child. A copy will also be available to download from the website from 6/2/18. At the parent/ carer evening, besides being able to discuss your child’s progress with his/her teachers, you will also be able to ask them any subject specific questions. General questions will be answered by Ms Squires who will be available throughout the evening.

    The completed options form must be returned to school by Monday 5 March. This Parent/carers’ evening will be crucial in making decisions about your son/daughter’s future.

    From 9am on 19 February 2018, you will be able to make your own appointment by clicking on the ‘Parents’ Evening’ icon on Connect. Please ensure you have your Username and Password for Connect as you will have to use them to log on.

    If you require help with access to the well of the hall because of mobility, please make reception aware by email. Similarly if you are unable to attend but would like to discuss your child’s progress, please contact his/her subject teacher to arrange an alternative appointment.

    As the back gate is locked outside of school hours, please remember to use the front gate (on The Boulevard) only.

    We look forward to seeing you on 27 February 2018.

    Yours faithfully

     

    Mr C Davis
    Head of Vocational Learning

     

  • MFL Spelling Bee competition

    On Thursday 8th February, 22 Year 7 students competed in the 2nd Durrington High School Languages Spelling Bee final. The students had just 60 seconds to translate and spell as many words as they could from a list of 100, at random. All the students produced fantastic pronunciation of the French/Spanish alphabet.

    In a tight competition, the following students were successful. For French, 3) Daisy OHara 2) Joe Thomas, and the winner, Thomas Teissandier.

    For Spanish, 3) Kerem Deniz 2) Henry Grigg, and the winner, Damian Vasquez-Santana. (students pictured with Head of Department Mrs Graham and Assistant Head of Research Centre Ms F Haynes).

    A fantastic achievement for all involved. A massive well done from the Languages team and a thank you to all in attendance for their support of the students.
