The commitment of our teaching staff, support staff and governors drives our continued progress.

Our purpose is to make sure that our students leave our school as happy, active, independent learners, who are enterprising, articulate, confident young people, whose achievements, both in and outside school, are recognized and valued.

Devonport High School for Girls is a Specialist Languages College which was founded in 1908. We are proud of our history, but our main focus is looking to the future.

In our aim of providing the best educational opportunities today, we believe that our students leave us equipped to go out into the world of the 21st Century ready to make a real difference.

Choosing the right school for your daughter is a difficult yet crucial decision and I would encourage you to come and see for yourselves just what we have to offer.

The Student Support Team is heavily involved in supporting students across all year groups providing bespoke support to meet students need. This specialist support includes SEN support, academic and pastoral mentoring, literacy support, counselling, behaviour and attendance support and links to outside agencies.

We know you want the best for your child and so would ask for your cooperation in keeping us informed of any circumstance that may affect them. If your child is diagnosed with any new medical condition after they join us in Year 7 please remember to contact your Head of House to update us and allow us to work with you to support your child.

If your child becomes ill and is unable to attend school we will work with you to ensure that their education is not disrupted if at all possible. We will support their reintegration back into school after illness with variety of measures to reduce any potential anxieties?

We know you will be keen to assist us in removing any potential barriers to progress as you are as keen as we are to see your child achieving their full potential in school. If you wish to seek advice about any matter of a confidential nature that may affect the wellbeing of your child, please contact Mrs Ruth Morgan who is the Assistant Head Teacher in charge of Inclusion and also the Designated Safeguarding Lead and also leads on Mental Health.
