Primary Education

Division Head: Martha Piper

The primary ed division offers a great opportunity to get out of the Durham bubble for an hour or so a week. A group of Castle students will go out to a local primary school to teach children Latin, read with them, or take an after-school activity called ‘Bright Sparks’, which focuses on stretching them beyond their normal curriculum.

We will all travel together, and all expenses will be paid by college. The time we spend with the children not only means a lot to the school but is also great fun and provides an opportunity to get to know a different group of people within college. Anyone is welcome, no past experience needed! I’ll be organising some socials early on, as well as the DBS sessions (to get anyone interested security checked). Can’t wait to meet you all!

If interested in getting involved, please contact the Head of the Primary Ed division Martha – cca.primaryed@durham.ac.uk
