I am delighted to welcome you to our school. A place where your children will be happy, confident and able individuals who are ready to shape the world.
It is an impossible task to describe what makes us who we are in written word… When you visit our school you will understand my predicament. The family feeling is something you simply have to experience, words cannot portray who and what we actually are.
On behalf of our community I extend a warm welcome to you all, please contact us on 01452 543335 or e-mail us to arrange a visit.
We Discover, Realise, Honour and Shape every day.
We are DenmarkRoad365.
Our school is remarkable.
Please come and see it for yourself.
Miss Claire Giblin,

On Saturday the Jazz band played at the 'Jazz It Up' schools event at the Cheltenham Jazz festival. It was a wonderful experience to perform in front of such an enthusiastic crowd!
On Friday the Music department took musicians from Year 10 and Year 12 to a 'Behind The Scenes' event at the Cheltenham Jazz festival. They had a question and answer session with a panel of musicians and the creative team behind Radio 2's 'Friday Night is Music Night' and then watched a rehearsal for that evenings radio broadcast.
The rain could not dampen the spirits of the students today who carried on and had their celebration picnic inside. The PTFA ladies sold ice cream. Thank you to Unilever for supplying these. Each student received a cake. Thank you to 'My Cupcake Toppers' for the wonderful birthday toppers and Aspens for supplying the cupcakes, which were delicious! There was also a large cake for Miss Giblin to cut. The school looked lovely before the rain with the bunting and balloons. An assembly was held in the gym where Miss Giblin introduced the new Sixth Form team and spoke about the history of the school.
The Year 10 Geography students had a wonderful time at Nettlecombe over the last two days.
Our community believes in each individual member and their ability to achieve. Our curriculum develops autonomy and resilience enabling students to enjoy learning and become confident, lifelong learners able to thrive now and in the future. Our timeless values encourage responsibility, generosity of heart and above all social conscience.
Denmark Road High School is at the heart of Gloucester City. The stunning setting of Gloucester Cathedral welcomes our students and parents for Honour's Evening. This event recognises the outstanding achievements our students have made in Academics, Sports, STEM and the Arts during the academic year. The Cathedral also hosts our Annual Charity Concert and our Christmas Carol Service.
We value our role in the community through the contributions our students make to local charities and causes. We are proud our students welcome residents of local nursing homes to a tea party at the school. Other students volunteer at food banks and homeless shelters while the students of local primary schools benefit from the support with their reading and languages during our regular student visits. We regularly highlight and support local charities through various fundraising events throughout the school year.
Our Sixth Form students certainly benefit from our close proximity to the city centre and Gloucester Quays with its multiple shopping and cafe options. Denmark Road High School is outward-looking, forward-thinking, community focussed and will always be at the Heart of the City.
Mrs R Hayward, Office & Events Manager deals with queries from parents/carers and other members of the public. She will forward the query to the most relevant member of staff.
