Located in the heart of historic Durham city, Durham Chinese School is one of the most successful supplementary schools in the UK with outstanding successes in educating children in Chinese language and culture and achieving outstanding results in nationally recognised examinations. The School currently not only offers a full-range of Chinese language classes including GCSE course in order to meet different levels’ students’ needs, but also runs various interest class, such as Chinese calligraphy, drawing and dance studio.
The School also acts as a cultural and social hub for Chinese and China related community activities in the northeast of England including County Durham, Sunderland and Darlington. In May 2018, our school was honoured the Chinese Education Contribution Award by the Chinese Consulate in Manchester and this makes our school is becoming the centre and the link between Durham and the surrounding Chinese communities.
As the demand for Chinese language education (e.g. YCT & HSK), and knowledge of Chinese culture grows in the UK, Durham Chinese School is fully ready to take on the challenge and is best placed to meet that demand. We welcome children from all School ages who are interested in learning Chinese language and in experiencing Chinese culture to the School. We also welcome anyone who is interested in learning about China and Chinese culture to join Durham Chinese School community. We look forward to hearing from you!
