We are really looking forward to welcoming your child to Durham Johnston Comprehensive School in September 2021!


Over the Summer Holidays, between the 16th – 27 August 2021, we are excited to be hosting a Summer School. The Summer School will be open to our new Year 7 intake only, but will be split into 2 weeks (Monday to Friday/Monday to Friday). The first week will be open to students who are in forms DURHA; the second week will be open to students in MJCS. Of course, if you have plans, pupils can attend on the other dates offered.   

The summer school will involve various activities such as sporting events, team building activities, dance and much more. Amongst other things, this will be a fantastic opportunity for students to work alongside the rest of their new year group and meet staff here too, ahead of starting school in September. 


Sample timetable for one day:



The Summer School will operate as a school day (timing wise) and all equipment will be provided.  It is free of charge and lunch will be provided (free of charge) for all children.   Transport will be provided for those who are eligible via County Hall for September.

This is a fantastic opportunity for your son/daughter to meet and make new friends ahead of starting school in September. Applications have now closed, and we're pleased to have been able to accommodate all students at their requested time.
