DCC were last night crowned U13 Champions in the Tameside Girls Football Tournament.
The Tournament has taken place over 2 weeks and demonstrated the spirit, determination and talent of the U13 Girls team.
After cruising through the first week of the tournament with a spectacular win over Hyde (6-0) and Fairfield B (5-0) the girls faced a tough second week with 4 games ahead of them. They started off the first game with a tough start with a 1-1 draw against Alder, the drama was heightened with a late equaliser! They then went onto win against Fairfield A, Droylsden and Rayner Stephens.
The team didn’t know the results of the other schools when they had finished their round of matches and had an agonising wait whilst the other scores came in. However, this wait added to the celebrations and made victory all the sweeter as Denton Community College were declared winners of the Tameside Tournament!
The girls were outstanding throughout all games, they showed fantastic sportsmanship and as always represented DCC in a respectable manner. Miss Redfern would like to that she is  “Super proud” of all the girls and wants to say Well done!

Christmas Hamper Appeal 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,
We are asking Year 9,10 and 11 students to bring non perishable foods items to college for the St Mary’s and Carmel Church food hamper appeal. These donations can be handed into main reception by Monday 2nd December.  If each form could bring in just 2 cans of food would mean we have 60 cans to donate. Therefore every donation makes a real difference.
In addition to this on Tuesday 3rd December, four Year 9 Community Ambassadors will be visiting Carmel Church and St Mary’s at 10am to help pack the food hampers.
Thank you for your support

On Friday 15th November 2019 students and staff are encouraged to come to school wearing something yellow, this could be a T-shirt or a top over their shirt, a tie or another item of Yellow clothing with your uniform. In addition to this, we are asking for a £1 donation that will be given to Children in Need.

BBC Children in Need is the BBC’s UK charity. Since 1980 it has raised over £1 billion for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

The school will also celebrate the event and have further fundraising opportunities by involving ourselves with “Move For Children in Need”. Students and Staff will be in the schoolyard engaging with a flash mob-style fitness event led by Mr Day. 

For every person that participates Denton Community College will make a donation! The more the merrier. 

Finally, Staff and Year 10 & 11 are invited to  take part in after school Body pump with Mr Day
For every person wearing yellow Mr Day will donate a pound!Let’s raise as much as we can

Year 11 – Netball Champions!

The Year 11 netball team won the final week of netball fixtures. After cruising through the semi-finals where they beat St Damian’s. The team dug deep in a nail-biting final and beat St Thomas More. It was a very tense and close-fought game. Mrs Ward was extremely proud of the effort of all the players in the match and in the competition overall. Well done & Congratulations!

LEP Sports Leaders Training

LEP Sports Leaders Training

On Friday 18th October 2019 some of our year 9 Sports Leadership Academy students delivered a Sports Leaders Training afternoon to year 5 students from 5 of our LEP Primary Schools.  They delivered activities to help develop their team-building skills and leadership qualities, alongside helping them to plan, set-up and deliver their own activities/games.  The year 5 students had a great afternoon getting to know each other and having lots of fun!  A special thanks to Ruby, Chloe, Ruby, Ria, Andrew, Olivia and Isabelle for planning and delivering this afternoon!  The Year 5 students will now go on to deliver sports clubs to younger students at break time and lunch in their Primary school.


To celebrate 20 years of supporting school breakfast clubs, Kellogg’s has awarded the college £1,000 to enhance the club and help feed our young people in the morning.

The college was selected to receive this boost as Kellogg’s announce they are to double their investment in breakfast clubs in 2019 as more and more schools struggle to find the budget to fund this service for their pupils.

Breakfast clubs help with everything from attendance and attainment to alleviating hunger and providing pre-school care. 68 per cent of teachers believe pupils would struggle to concentrate in class without their breakfast club, according to Kellogg’s research.

Mrs Duffy ( Head of Community) said: “We are so grateful to receive this generous donation. We have since been able to purchase equipment, cereal, milk for our club.

These resources will help us to provide our breakfast club services for our young people and help  their families thanks to the support from Kellogg’s.”

Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, at Kellogg’s, said “We’re proud to have spent 20 years supporting so many schools across the UK. We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, and we know that equipment and resources are just as important to clubs as the food itself.”

Kellogg’s has supported 3,000 school breakfast clubs with funds, food and training over the last 20 years – that’s 70 million bowls of cereal to children all over the UK since 1998.
