Welcome to Debenham High SchooL 

 

Message from the Headteacher


Monday 1st July 2024
 

This last two weeks in school has been incredibly busy but incredibly enjoyable as a number of events have brought our school community together.

We held our Music Concert and School Production of The Tempest, to a 90’s musical backing at Crow’s Hall.  It is such a privilege for our students to perform in such a fantastic venue both in the moated gardens and in the Barn and we are incredibly grateful for the use of this fantastic venue.  As ever the quality was fantastic but it is always such a joy to see the fun and enjoyment the students and staff have putting on such a treat for the audience.

We held our Year 11 Leaver’s Prom at Otley Hall, it was lovely to see nearly all of our students attend in their finery to enjoy a warm summers evening with them all. It is always a bittersweet evening as we say goodbye to the students but excited for the amazing futures they have ahead of them.

Last Friday saw our annual Sports Day, where the whole school congregates to support and participate in the events.  As ever our students were a real credit to the school in the support and encouragement they gave to each other as well as some incredible sporting performances.

This week we hold our Summer Awards Evening for students in Year 7-10 to recognise all of their achievements over this past year.  These achievements are for academic success and progress but also to recognise some of the students who contribute to school life in so many other ways.  It is always a lovely evening.

Next week sees our Year 10 students start on their Work Experience Placements, a really important window into the world of work for them.

Warmest Wishes

Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

 SCHOOL VISION

 

Debenham High School aims to nurture excellence and integrity in all members of our community. 

Debenham High is a place of learning and personal development for all. We aim to develop students to enable them to take their place in society as happy, successful and resilient people who act with integrity, purpose and love. Students develop a curiosity about the world around them and a desire to learn. All students regardless of background and ability will be exposed to the very best so that they are able to understand and aspire to excellence; they should see this excellence both in school and beyond in the academic and cultural world. We hold  that all people are made in the image of God and as such we encourage students to develop a respect for and tolerance of others - regardless of differences of race, disability, sexuality, gender, culture or religion.  

As well as learning about other faiths and world views  our students develop an understanding of the Christian Faith and act in a way which demonstrates the key attributes of love, joy, peace, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self -control. The whole school community is encouraged to live by Jesus’ teaching to love our neighbour and to “Treat others as you wish to be treated”

Students will leave Debenham, with excellent academic qualifications, a love and curiosity for knowledge, resilient and ready to succeed in and contribute to an ever changing world, having developed a moral strength, compassion and understanding of others.

Growing together in Character, Wisdom and Compassion.
