Christmas Concert

The DGS Christmas Concert was on Wednesday 19 December. Cluster P7s joined us during the dress rehearsal in the afternoon. A hugely diverse group of talented students (and some members of staff!) performed to a very appreciative audience. Everyone enjoyed a great night!  Huge thanks to all involved, in particular Drama and Music.


Goodbye and good luck to Ruth Cox, Teacher of Music, and Andy Shanks, Teacher of Maths, who are taking up new posts after Christmas. We wish them the best in their future careers.

Christmas Dance

The S3/4 dance on Monday was a huge success; everyone had a wonderful night!  Thanks to the PE department for organising this and all of the dances.
