Durrington High School is a Coeducational secondary school located in Worthing, West Sussex. The school operated as a high school between 1973 and 2015 as part of Worthing's three-tier provision. From September 2015 the school became a standard secondary for 11 - 16-year-olds. The school converted to academy status on 1 April 2014.HistoryThis senior school is the product of a merger in 1973 of two neighbouring schools, with their playing fields divided by a single white line: Worthing County Secondary School for Girls and Worthing Technical High School . The County Secondary School for Girls moved to the new brick built Rodmell Road building in 1953 from the historic Sussex Road school with Miss Lilian Belchamber continuing her distinguished career as the head mistress until the creation of Durrington High School in 1973. The Technical High moved to the Boulevard location in 1955 from Union Place Worthing and renamed Worthing Technical High School. The school building has now been rebuilt and extended considerably with the Technical High building demolished some years ago and many sections of the Rodmell Road building still standing and extended. Durrington High School continues to have the seahorse as their school crest which was the emblem of the County Secondary school. The school uniform has been modified over the years, including the re-introduction of compulsory school blazers in 2008. In 2015, education provision in Worthing was reorganised into the standard two-tier provision, with Durrington increasing its roll by extending to take pupils in Year 7 who had previous attended the local middle schools.
