Information for parents

We aim to provide parents of current and prospective children at Durand all the information they need to feel updated and informed about the school.


Studies show that the first five years of a child’s life are the most important in terms of learning and development.  This is why Early Years education is so important to us at the Durand Academy.

We have spent millions of pounds redeveloping our Mostyn site facilities, so that from the age of three parents and carers can be sure that their children will get the very best start to their education.


From small class sizes and organic and farm assured lunches, to swimming lessons in a tailor-made learner pool on site, we have developed a broad and varied curriculum to engage children to become bright and eager learners from an early age.


This dedication to educational excellence continues at our Hackford Road site, where again we have a custom swimming pool, access to musical instruments and well-trained and motivated teachers.


Durand Academy has a long track record of delivering excellence in education, and has been rated as ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted for the last fifteen years.

We all work hard day in day out to ensure that we stay this way.  Most importantly to us is that every child that comes through the Durand Academy gates reaches their full potential, whatever it may be.
