The PTA plays an important role within our school and local community, with activities centred on several key areas; fundraising, the provision of second-hand school uniform and communication. There are lots of ways you can help and support your daughters and sons through the PTA. It doesn't matter if you can't help on a regular basis; any help, however, at events or at other times during the year would be appreciated. It really is a case of 'many hands make light work'. In helping with our PTA events, you might discover some hidden talents and you will definitely make new friends. The PTA are always looking for volunteers ... please help by signing up ... email firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
