A message from Brent Bell

On our first visit to Darlington, it was the people here who made me and my family feel like this could be our home. They showed us what it means to be a Darlington Tiger and welcomed us with open arms. Now that we live here, we have no doubt that Darlington School was the right fit for us.

Head of School

Home is Where the House is
