Donation from Rotary Club

With many of our students requiring learning programmes individually tailored for them, the additional Chromebook laptops have made a massive difference and will continue to do so long after the pandemic is over.

Footballing Success!

The Danesgate team completed an emphatic victory of a three team football tournament held at Askham Bryan on 26th February. They won every game – by at least 2 goals!

The boys behaved impeccably and shook hands at the end of each game. They responded positively and sensibly when put under pressure and communicated well with their peers, officials and competitors.

They should all be very proud of themselves – each and every one was an absolute credit to the Danesgate Community.

Outstanding GCSE results celebrated in the Press!

We were delighted to see Francesca’s success celebrated in the paper and on the Press website!  She has been a valued member of the Danesgate Community for two years and her hard work has paid off with three 9s and six 8s – the equivalent of all A* results – in her GCSEs!

Francesca’s mum, Alison, was quoted in the paper, saying “I just think it would be great for other students who would otherwise drop out to hear Francesca’s story. Her success is testament to Danesgate.”
