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,

What a wonderful Open Morning and Evening yesterday!
This Thursday ...
Thank you to the students and staff who raised a wonderful £267.62 for Macmillan from our Coffee Morning.
Year 7s made Florentines yesterday in their Food Technology lesson. They looked wonderful!
The Art of Deception by Rachel Rooney Deception is an art I've come to learn. Like webs that garden spiders carefully weave it takes a little effort, and in turn an unsuspecting fly that might believe. The yarn you spin must always be secure. The words rehearsed. If using alibis it helps to fix them first. And do ensure misleading truths are knotted with the lies. The body language needs to be relaxed. Uncross the legs, reveal an open palm. Maintain unblinking eye-to-eye contact. A reassuring hand upon an arm. I know all this. Yet I identify not with the artful spider, but the fly.
Celebrating National Poetry Day 'Hope' is the thing with feathers Emily Dickinson (1830- 1886) "Hope" is the thing with feathers - That perches in the soul - And sings the tune without the words - And never stops - at all - And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard - And sore must be the storm - That could abash the little Bird That kept so many warm - I've heard it in the chillest land - And on the strangest Sea - Yet - never - in Extremity, It asked a crumb - of me.
BETTY TAYLOR - FORMER MATHS TEACHER AT DENMARK ROAD Betty was a regular worshipper at Longlevens Church for many years but within the last few years moved away from Longlevens to live with her sister. It is understood that Betty went to teach at Denmark Road straight from becoming a teacher and stayed there all her teaching days. We celebrated her 90th Birthday here in Longlevens. She sadly passed away and Longlevens is holding a memorial service for her on 31st October at 2.15pm.
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.
