Student Enrichment
Our pursuit of excellence in performance sport, music, drama and volunteering is underpinned by our belief in its educational value for our students. Dedication, discipline, leadership, integrity and passion are all needed to achieve on the pitch, the stage or the concert platform; they are also key skills for life - and are attributes that employers are keen to see.
At College and University level, there are involvement, performance and volunteering opportunities across a broad swathe of areas of interest and levels of skill. There is a Durham Experience for everyone.
