No need to book.
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 tops the table for Pupil Progress Pupil Progress scores: "A sensational achievement" – Claire Giblin, Headteacher Denmark Road High School has achieved the highest pupil progress score in the county. The school, recently named the Sunday Times State Southwest State Secondary School of the Year in their Schools Guide, Parent Power, has achieved the highest ranking of 'above average' in measures that calculate progress, attainment, good English and Maths passes and numbers of students staying in education post 16. Headteacher Claire Giblin was delighted with the Key Stage 4 progress figures published today: "It is fantastic that the unbelievable work of our students, staff and school community have been recognised with these latest league tables. We are rightly proud of our outstanding headline figures; 65 of our students achieved more than ten 9-7 GCSEs last summer with some 75% of all entries being graded above 7. However, our school priority remains 'positive progress and well-being for all'. It is great to see this recognised today with a Progress 8 score of +0.90. This shows our students achieve nearly one whole grade higher at Denmark Road than students of similar ability nationally. A sensational achievement". The results, published on the Compare School Performance service on the gov.uk website, show Denmark Road High School achieved the 89th highest Progress score in the country across 6274 schools and the 42nd highest in terms of Attainment. "We will never accept any of our students holding back in anything they do" Claire Giblin asserted "We are creating strong-minded independent young people at Denmark Road. They make amongst the best progress academically in the country here while also developing as individuals and leaders who stand out in a crowd, know who they are and know who they will be." Claire Giblin noted "This has already been a remarkable year. Starting with record breaking results this summer across A Level and GCSE. We moved into our new Sixth Form Centre this September and were announced in January as the Sunday Times Southwest State School of the Year. Now we have been recognised as the top performing secondary school in Gloucestershire. I am looking forward to the rest of the year already!"
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.
