I am delighted to welcome you to our school. A place where your children will be happy, confident and able individuals, through every tailored experience they are prepared for who they want to be in 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. In our school every student is known, valued, included and celebrated.
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,
Yesterday Year 12 and Year 13 Politics students visited the Houses of Parliament and the Supreme Court.
Please join us for a second hand uniform sale tomorrow where you'll find a promotion on shirts - 3 for £10!
Our Young Carers Group was visited by Rebecca from Gloucestershire Young Carers recently as part of their programme of tours for Young Carers Action Day. We are so proud to be supporting our carer students and look forward to the development of this group.
Geography Field Trip Last week our Year 10 Geographers headed to Nettlecombe. At the River Holford they carried out a range of primary data collection techniques to answer our Physical Geography Enquiry question- 'How does the river change downstream?'. Their second day was a sunny one spent in Taunton, using Human Geography techniques such as questionnaires and Environmental Quality Assessments to answer their Human Enquiry question - 'To what extent has Taunton's regeneration project been a success?' Teachers reported that the students were brilliant and we also received an email from a member of the public who was staying at the same accommodation; "I am writing to you as a former teacher to commend your students on their excellent behaviour. Both in their interactions over a communal breakfast and in the manner in the classroom, in terms of their interest, focus and general attitude, they were very impressive. I found myself wondering whether, in my experience, I had ever seen better." Well done everyone, we couldn't be more proud!
Poetry Competition Winner In aid of World Book Day, our Library Prefects ran a poetry competition. The winner was Freya in Year 8 for her poem inspired by Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. The past is full of pain, But the future's what we become. The past is full of shame, But the future's what we run. The world is a river, And we are just a boat. Some get a headstart, And others just float. Flowers need to blossom, But the later one's more sweet. Our family we lost them, But we honour them each week. A glowstick needs to break, Before it starts to shine. The sun it needs to wake, But the light is always mine. This life came at a cost, Over love it is a shroud, Our family we lost, But our friends we found.
House Dance Today we are celebrating with our House Dance competition. Students have worked really hard on their performances and are already wowing their audience. Later today we will see our Senior Dance Squad perform their routine that won them a place in the final of the Great Big Dance Off.
Another fantastic World Book Day costume... this time a collaboration between many students to create the diet of a Hungry Caterpillar!
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.
Please email email@example.com with any queries, and they will be forwarded to the most relevant member of staff.
All visitors to the school are required to bring photographic ID.
