About School

As being the international girls school, we believe that it is important that our students experience a range of subjects that will prepare them fully for the challenges of the 21st century. This means that we are equally concerned in developing our students’ skills such as leadership,
 
INTRODUCTION
communication, enquiry, resilience, team work, creativity, independence and collaboration, as we are in developing academic achievement. We have therefore created a curriculum that will challenge and excite our students as well as giving them the essential skills they need for the fast-changing world. All students have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, which enables all students to develop an understanding and appreciation of the arts, technology, humanities alongside the core subjects (English, maths and science) throughout growing stages. As a girls’ school we challenge gender stereotypes as part of our ethos and within our curriculum. All students follow a tutorial programme that addresses personal, social, health and careers issues. All students are encouraged to attend our varied enrichment activities that are offered both in the school hours and after school as well. Outside of the classroom we are fortunate in having staff who provide a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities for students and this is central to our philosophy. Sport plays an important part in the life of the school and at a very short span of time we are successful at national and regional level in a number of sports including sapaktakra.Similarly, we have many opportunities for students to showcase and develop their talents in Music, Drama and the Arts. students take part in a number of activities and events that allow them to develop and prepare for life beyond the school. Staff are our most valued asset and we aim to support them both in their current roles and to develop them for their future careers. Working alongside the teaching staff, we have a skilled support staff team who perform vital roles within the school. Continued professional development plays an important role in ensuring that the quality of teaching is very high in the school. DIGS has a very supportive local Governing Body who play a vital role in the life of the school. We also enjoy supportive and committed parents who work alongside the school to improve outcomes for their daughters.
