What the school says...
Denstone College offers a rounded education where proper emphasis is given to academic achievement and high standards are a priority. At the heart of our educational approach is excellence in teaching and learning and pupils across the ability range benefit from fantastic educational facilities and highly qualified staff. In today’s competitive environment, universities and colleges are seeking evidence of intellectual appetite as well as top grades at both GCSE and A level. At Denstone, pupils learn what is needed to perform well in public examinations, but we also aim to inculcate a love of learning which will stay for life. We stretch our pupils, in terms of work ethic and intellectual ambition, helping them to achieve high grades and exceed expectations.
Ours is a rich, varied and stimulating learning environment where extra curricular opportunities and excellence in sport, music and drama abound. Standards are high and we provide close mentoring to ensure our pupils exceed expectations in and outside the classroom. What supports Denstonians in these efforts is an environment which applauds success, very good teaching by subject specialists, and a level of academic and pastoral mentoring that genuinely cherishes the individual. ...Read more
