Our staff

We are proud of our team of well-trained, energetic and motivated teachers at Durand, who have high ambitions for every pupil at the school. We are committed to working closely with parents to ensure every child reaches their full potential, and our dedicated teaching staff remain on hand throughout the course of each term to discuss each child’s progress and any queries or concerns that parents might have.

Our staff training programme has been highly commended by Ofsted, HMI and internationally.
