Dear Year 7
Welcome to Denbigh High School. I am very proud to be the Head of Year 7 at Denbigh High School. You are now part of a very special learning community. It is special because it is a very successful community where everyone achieves a great deal. We expect you to learn very effectively so that you will develop all the skills you need to get the most out of life and to get really good exam results when the time comes. Of course this means working hard in all your subjects, but it also means growing up to be polite, courteous and respectful, helpful to other people, a good leader and someone who gives just as much to the community as you get out of it.
It is very important to us at Denbigh High that we all help each other to do well. That is why our core value statement is so important to us. You will see it around school a lot because we really mean it. I hope you have already memorised it, but if not, do so as soon as you can: ‘High achievement for all is our shared responsibility’
We are looking forward to working with you all and helping you reach your full potential. If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Garricques at DEN_Transitions@denbighhigh.co.uk
