We work hard to ensure that entering RSD as a new Year 8 pupil is both an exciting and reassuring experience.
I feel confident
We provide a safe and caring environment where pupils have the opportunity to develop their self-confidence and reach their academic potential in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
I feel proud
