As a genuinely ‘community’ school we are thrilled to receive this kind of generous support from local organisations like Rotary and look forward to giving back to the community when circumstances allow.Mr Richardson, Headteacher
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.
The exhibition will show some of the best of the year’s work and is a fantastic annual event, so please do come along! The exhibition will run from 2-4-2020 to 23-4-20200 and we are delighted to once more be able to use the City of York Council West Offices as a venue (just opposite the Cedar Court Grand Hotel).
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.”
