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.

Odd socks day ... supporting Anti-bullying
Well done to Joanne Binith in 8H who created a piece of Art for House Art that shows the realities of cyber bullying.
We are supporting 'Odd Socks Day' today as part of Anti Bullying week. Anti-Bullying Week happens in schools across England each November. This year's Anti-Bullying Week has the theme Change Starts With Us and is happening from Monday 11th November - Friday 15th November 2019.
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.
