School Overview

Located in Luton, Bedfordshire, Denbigh High School has a strong local and national reputation as an outstanding school. We have 1120 students between the ages of 11 and 16 and became a converter academy in October 2010.
We have a decade-long record of year-on-year achievement at GCSE, during which time the proportion of students gaining 5 or more, good GCSEs has more than quadrupled. We are currently the highest performing secondary school in Luton, ranked in 1st place in the 2015 GCSE examinations.
Our focus on success and achievement is uncompromising and our value-added score for progress from key stages 2 to 4 places us within the top 100 state funded schools in England.
Since September 2013 we have been part of a multi-academy trust called the Chiltern Learning Trust. The schools within the Trust are Denbigh High School, Challney High School for Boys and Dallow Primary School.
We are also a member of the Challenge Partners network with the ‘Denbigh Hub’ being one of only a small number of hubs across the country. These networks provide a structured and sustained approach to school improvement through training and developing teachers, peer review, school-to-school support and joint practice and leadership development.
The school’s core value statement "High achievement for all is our shared responsibility" reflects our belief that everyone must work together and support one another as a learning community so that each and every student and staff member is able to achieve the highest standards in all that they do.
