Durham Community Business College

Durham Community Business College for Technology and Enterprise (DCBC) is located on Bracken Court at Ushaw Moor. The college is part of the Durham Federation and has about 320 students aged 11 to 16.[1] The site was previously Deerness Valley Comprehensive School.

Durham Community Business College (DCBC) is a coeducational secondary school located in Ushaw Moor, County Durham, England.

DCBC is a community school under the control of Durham County Council. It has specialisms in Business and Enterprise and Technology and has additional facilities for the specialisms.

The school offers GCSEs, BTECs and OCR Nationals as programmes of study for pupils. The Durham Studio Sixth Form is located on the same site as DCBC, and offers sixth form courses for 16- to 19-year-olds.

DCBC is part of the Durham Federation which also includes Fyndoune Community College, and used to include Durham Studio Sixth Form. However both schools are currently in special measures due to an inadequate rating from Ofsted, and Durham Studio Sixth Form was closed in 2014.

In 2015, Anne Lakey (Chief Executive of the Durham Federation) was jailed for eight years after being found guilty of 13 counts of indecent assault after sexual allegations concerning two schoolboys in 1980s.

In April 2017, Mrs Alison Jobling was officially appointed as Headteacher of the Durham Federation.
