The award recognises the outstanding achievements of Denmark Road High School's students in their GCSE and A Level examinations this summer. Headteacher Claire Giblin said "Denmark Road High School achieves excellence not by focussing on outcomes but through a holistic approach to education, by striving for 'Nothing Less than Positive Progress and Well-being for all'. Our school ethos is underpinned by developing resilient lifelong learners and future leaders. Our rapid improvement in results has reflected our shift in teaching philosophy to focus on metacognition and thinking hard approaches. Denmark Road students are in charge of their learning, resilient to set backs and are sophisticated critical thinkers. This gives them the platform for success inside, outside and beyond the classroom. I thank them for their pursuance of personal and collective excellence."
GCSE and A Level Certificates are now ready to collect from Reception 8.30-3.30 Monday to Friday.
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.

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.
