The area will be staffed, and support will be available for all students who may require additional provision in completing tasks or finding resources.

Online Booking

The Get Ahead Club booking form is sent to parents on Mondays each week.

Please remember that there are limited spaces available and these must be booked in advance. Please therefore only use Get Ahead if absolutely necessary for your child.

Unfortunately, if a child does not have a pre-booked space in Get Ahead club they will not be able to attend. This is due to the fact that we will need to carefully manage numbers and ‘bubbles’ to remain Covid secure.

If you have pre-booked a space for your child and you no longer require it please email to let us know in advance. 


Follow us on our new Twitter account @DHSBGetAhead where we will post important information and advice.



Our Get Ahead club is a real benefit for all students which gives them the opportunity to complete work in a safe and supportive environment. It will also give an opportunity to ensure that all homework is complete, and handed in on time therefore reducing the chance of gaining assignment loggings.


To recognise those students who attend, Get Ahead will provide a formal reward card system where students can achieve commendations for attending, completing homework, and supporting others. achieve commendations for attending, completing homework, and supporting others.
