Denmark Road High School

Discover Realise Honour Shape

Headteacher’s Welcome



A very warm welcome to the Denmark Road High School website.

So, I have been set the impossible task of describing our school to you 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 come to our Open Mornings and Evenings or contact us on 01452 543335 or to arrange a visit.


What I can explain is what we believe in and stand for.  At Denmark Road High School we act in Honour. We understand we are preparing your daughters and sons to embrace more opportunities and face more complex challenges than ever before. They are our future leaders; our next generation of doctors, lawyers and entrepreneurs.  It is an amazing responsibility which rests on their shoulders. We, in turn, recognise and embrace our duty and privilege in preparing them for this.


We understand that as our young people leave us they will be less than a quarter of the way through their lives and they will have spent less than 20% of their time in school. We know that we are not producing the finished article. Our purpose is to work in partnership with you and the community, to ensure we provide exceptional and memorable experiences within and beyond the classroom that will enable your daughters and sons to embrace and Shape the future.


At Denmark Road High School excellence is achieved through responsiveness. We have set the goal of settling for ‘Nothing less than positive progress and wellbeing for all’. We are committed to enabling each member of our community to Discover who they are as individuals and to respond to their needs such that they Realise their personal best. Each and every day we strive for excellence in all we do, not only academic study but in every part of our development.


We achieve this by ensuring that at our core is a focus on the development of our staff and our students. We are creating people of character and confidence who are fully equipped to achieve great things. Denmark Road High School is ranked 53rd amongst all state schools in the UK with 70% of all grades achieved at GCSE being 9-7 or A*/A.  For the second year running we have been recognised as the best secondary school in Gloucestershire by the Real Schools Guide. 


We Discover, Realise, Honour and Shape every day.

We are DenmarkRoad365.

Our school is remarkable.


Please come and see it for yourself.
