Games & The Arts
Sport and the arts are a vital part of the education of any well-rounded boy, and here at Durston these are promoted enthusiastically.
To Durston, the term Pastoral Care is all-embracing; it is the complete care of a boy, in his whole education and the development of his character. From the ISI Inspection Report 2015: ‘The social development of the pupils is an outstanding feature of the school.’

Head Teacher’s Philosophy
A boy’s education here is shaped by the development of his character, his curiosity to learn and discover more, and his expanding capability. These three concepts, Character, Curiosity and Capability are the cornerstones of his success at Durston House and his success in life.
A Durston education seeks to help the pupils to develop into Renaissance Men. We want to encourage Durston boys to be curious, to become ‘thinkers’ and ‘problem solvers’ in the broadest sense, with an open, positive outlook on the world.
