Welcome to Debenham High SchooL 

Message from the Headteacher

 

Monday 30th January 2023

Last week saw students in both Year 7 and Year 11 on school visits to extend their learning beyond the classroom.  Year 11 Science students visited UEA to hear lectures and develop their exam techniques, which was well received by the students.  Year 7 students visited Colchester Castle as part of their History studies.  As ever our students were a credit to the school behaving and engaging in the activities.

Next week sees the very welcome return of Diversity Week and whilst Diversity is something we consider all of the time in school, the week is about understanding, celebrating and learning about different cultures, religions and people as well as celebrating the commonalities of us all.  Parents will have received a letter outlining the activities and events both inside and beyond lessons and I am sure our students will find this an interesting and thought provoking week.

Wednesday is the first of what could be up to 4 strike days over the next term.  I am grateful to those staff in the NEU for keeping us informed of their intentions and this has meant that we have been able to keep school open for a large number of students.  If there are any questions around this then please do get in touch.  I am grateful for the supportive messages received by the school around this issue.

With warmest wishes

 

Simon Martin

vISION STATEMENT


Debenham High School aims to nurture excellence and integrity in all members of our community.
Debenham High is a place of learning and personal development for all. We aim to develop students to enable them to take their place in society as happy, successful and resilient people who act with integrity, purpose and love. Students develop a curiosity about the world around them and a desire to learn. All students regardless of background and ability will be exposed to the very best so that they are able to understand and aspire to excellence; they should see this excellence both in school and beyond in the academic and cultural world. We hold that all people are made in the image of God and as such we encourage students to develop a respect for and tolerance of others - regardless of differences of race, disability, sexuality, gender, culture or religion.


As well as learning about other faiths and world views our students develop an understanding of the Christian Faith and act in a way which demonstrates the key attributes of love, joy, peace, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self -control. The whole school community is encouraged to live by Jesus’ teaching to love our neighbour and to “Treat others as you wish to be treated”.


Students will leave Debenham, with excellent academic qualifications, a love and curiosity for knowledge, resilient and ready to succeed in and contribute to an ever changing world, having developed a moral strength, compassion and understanding of others.

Growing together in Character, Wisdom and Compassion
