Our soon to be Year 7s enjoyed a day at DHSB on Tuesday. Mr Martin led the induction to ensure a strong familiarity with the site and culture here in preparation for September.
Thank you to all staff and current students for making it such a successful day.

The following day we invited prospective students and parents in for Open Evening. The sun shone and the school rang with enthusiastic explanations of our ambitious plans for students at DHSB. A massive effort from all of our people led to some heart-warming feedback from our guests.

Our visitors were also able to enjoy and appreciate our A level Art Exhibition. Again, we have received some very positive comments about the standard of work on display.
