The school aims to provide well-rounded and practical education that helps pupils develop the knowledge and skills needed to become productive members of society. The curriculum is designed to encourage leadership, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. The main subjects include chemistry, maths, physics, English, modern languages, etc.

 

Denmark Road High School believes that a healthy body and mind are crucial for every student, which is why it offers a wide range of extracurricular activities outside of school hours. The PE programme provides an extensive list of sports-related activities, including football, netball, dance, badminton, and swimming. In addition, pupils can also join art, music, and drama clubs.

 

Denmark Road High School fosters a friendly and familial atmosphere and seeks to make every student feel valued, heard, and appreciated. Additionally, the school values contribution to the community, and pupils often volunteer at charities, homeless shelters, food banks, and nursing homes.

Denmark Road High School 11 Plus (11+) Admissions

 

For your child to be in with a chance of gaining one of the 150 Year 7 places at the school, she must reach the required standard in the 11 Plus exam. As per all the other grammar schools in Gloucestershire, Denmark Road Year 7 allocations are dealt with via Gloucestershire County Council. Parents who wish their daughter to sit the test must complete the Gloucestershire Grammar Test Registration Form, which can be found on the school’s website when registration is open.

 

In recent years, there has been three applications for every place, so in the event of oversubscription, the school will give priority to girls scoring highest in the 11 plus examination. Should there be a tie for places after this, the admissions’ authority will allocate places at random.
