Devonport High School for Girls

About Us

Welcome from the Head Teacher

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Devonport High School for Girls’ website. I am very proud to be the Head Teacher here at such an exceptional school. Here at DHSG, we value each and every young person as an individual and support them on their journey into adulthood.

At Devonport High School for Girls, our mission is to offer a challenging and enriching educational experience, which enables our students to develop their curiosity, confidence and aspirations, so that they leave us equipped to enjoy life in a global society. I firmly believe the key to our success is our ability to inspire young minds by providing an exciting, challenging and supportive educational environment, which offers innovative teaching methods and encourages creativity. We provide a wide range of exciting extra-curricular and enriching learning opportunities, which means that we can develop the skills, talents and potential of the whole person.

Our teachers, support staff and governors are all committed to the DHSG mission and strive to ensure that it becomes a reality for our students. DHSG is a Specialist Languages College which was founded in 1908. We are proud of our history, but our main focus is looking to the future. In our aim of providing the best educational opportunities today, we believe that our students leave us equipped to go out into the world of the 21st Century ready to make a real difference.

Choosing a secondary school is a difficult decision; it is, however, an important one. I would encourage you to visit us to see what we have to offer and look forward to meeting you in the future.
