Devonport High School for Girls

Pupil Premium 2022 – 2025

At Devonport High School for Girls our students are at the heart of everything we do; we are a community committed to creating opportunities for students to develop high aspirations, to make progress, and take advantage of all that school has to offer.

Fundamental to this aim is ensuring that students in receipt of Pupil Premium are supported and challenged to take a full, active part in school life, engaging with their learning, both in school and at home, embracing the culture of high expectations and accessing our excellent extra-curricular activities.

Research shows that when students receive high quality teaching and instruction, disadvantaged students benefit to a greater degree. Our main priority for the school, therefore, is to deliver excellent and innovative adaptive teaching which will give all students the opportunity to excel, improving our students’ life chances and academic outcomes.
