Image of happy students from Devonport High School for Boys

Devonport High School for Boys is proud of its reputation for academic excellence and for developing the skills our students need to be happy and successful. Since 1896, boys have entered DHSB on individual merit and our reputation has been earned by their endeavour and the professionalism of our staff.

We attract and appoint high calibre professionals to lead and support student learning, and provide a well-resourced, vibrant learning environment.

DHSB is supported by a strong governing body which brings a wealth of expertise and experience in supporting the Leadership Group and staff.

An outstanding aspect of our provision is our commitment to personal development and well-being. Our students have a very clear sense of right and wrong and are eager to contribute to the life of the school and wider community.

Under the guidance of a dedicated team of tutors, led by an experienced student support team, our boys know where to go when they need help. Our well established house system creates opportunities for the boys to compete and to have their achievements celebrated.

Please take this opportunity to look at our website and the Head’s Blog in particular to gain a broader view of our unique offer and a visual representation of our site and facilities.

Please contact me by email if you have any questions about admission to the school.
