10 September 2021

Hello everyone, we were delighted to welcome all our students back to DHSB this week.


It has been a real joy seeing everyone over the last couple of days and, following the induction programme, students are already beginning to feel a little more at ease and more confident about the year ahead.


I hope that as a family you have enjoyed yourselves over the summer and I am confident that although Covid-19 hasn’t gone away we are moving to a new period of adjusting to life with it.


I am confident that our students will continue to fulfil their responsibility personally and collectively to keep everyone safe by following the Covid-19 guidance and working hard to continue to do well with their learning.


I know that our parents and carers will also continue to provide support. Together we are a strong community and we must continue to pull together.


Thank you once again; we can look forward to an exciting year ahead.
