Values and Vision
Denbigh High School’s motto is “succeeding together”. It aims to deliver a high-quality education with aspirations for every student. The curriculum is flexible and enriching. The school set up the “identity project”. This is a scheme to help the pupils grow into intellectual adults. Staff and volunteers working on the project help the children face challenges and discover their talents.
“Many pupils have positive attitudes to healthy eating and living and enjoy physical activity. However, the poor behaviour and attitudes of a minority of pupils have a negative effect on the experience of school for pupils and staff. During their time in school, a majority of pupils make suitable progress in their knowledge, understanding and skills. In many cases, teachers identify accurately the strengths and areas for development in pupils’ work and provide them with suitable targets for improvement. The school’s successful partnership working enables it to offer an extensive range of academic and vocational qualifications in the sixth form.”
