Devonport High School for Girls was established in 1908 and is situated on a lovely green site overlooking Plymouth's Central Park, approximately two miles from the city centre. It is an 11-18 selective girls' grammar school and became an Academy in April 2011.
There are approximately 850 students on roll, including around 225 in the Sixth Form. Students come from Plymouth and the surrounding counties of Devon and Cornwall.
The school is part of The Link Partnership (TLP) with four other schools in the city, which enables us to extend curriculum provision for students in the Sixth Form.
In 2005 the school was granted Specialist Schools Status for Languages. We offer a number of languages including French, German, Spanish, Chinese and Latin. There is a dedicated Language Laboratory, and exchange and business links have been established within the UK and worldwide. The school first achieved International School status in 2006 and has recently received the award for the fifth time.
As well as its strong international links Devonport High School for Girls has gained a reputation for academic excellence, which helps launch its students on their chosen career paths. The work ethic in the school is very strong and staff are deeply committed to their teaching.
The school places a strong emphasis on developing the whole person and as part of this commitment organises a broad range of enriching extra-curricular opportunities and a comprehensive programme of educational and cultural visits, with opportunities for students to travel abroad.
The staff of approximately 100 teaching and support staff (a mixture of full-time and part-time employees) are led by the Senior Leadership Team, which comprises of the Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher, four Assistant Head Teachers and the Business Manager.
