Our School

Our leading school aim

"That each and every learner shall achieve their maximum potential and enjoy the process."

This aim is at the heart of all we strive to do at Dene Magna and we believe it makes the school a special place to study in, work at and be a part of. This is evidenced by our consistent Outstanding status award in Ofsted reports and our recognition by national and international bodies.

At Dene Magna, we embrace our location in the Forest of Dean but also challenge our students to thrive in modern Britain where they can create change.  Students at Dene Magna are challenged to:

  1. Work as hard as they can to get the very best qualifications
  2. Learn from people of different cultures and from different countries
  3. Use this knowledge to be the best version of themselves
  4. Come back to the Forest of Dean and pass this on to future generations.

We believe that we equip students for life in modern Britain and for an ever-changing world. We also believe that we will help maintain loyalty to this wonderful part of the world and an ability to use the heritage and culture from the Forest of Dean in whatever students go on to do.
