Year 7 and 8

DESS is in the process of expanding its facilities to provide a ‘state of the art’ new building where children will be educated to Year 7 from 2019 (children aged 11-12) and then Year 8 (children aged 12-13) from 2020. Pupils will be taught the British Curriculum by British trained and qualified teachers.

The development will be an extension to the current site and will enable DESS to accommodate two extra year groups.

In summary, the additional facilities will include :

• Dedicated Year 7 and 8 Classrooms
• Science Laboratory
• Art, Design & Technology Room
• Music Suite
• Student Common Room
• Spectator Balcony

It is hoped that this facility will be opened shortly, subject to regulatory approvals.
