Welcome to the 2017 school year


 Welcome to a new and exciting school year! Today was a very special day as we welcomed 23 new Preppies at our school. We wish them all the best for their school start and hope they will have a great time at DSM!







DSM Christmas Market 2016

The famous DSM Christmas Market will take place on Friday, 25 November 2016 from 5 to 9pm. 

Christmas Market 2015 Webseite


The market is a wonderful opportunity to view and purchase an amazing array of beautiful and unique traditional and contemporary handmade Christmas decorations and gifts, many with a distinctive German flavour. Celebrate the festive season with some delicious recipes from the new DSM cookbook, gorgeous candles, hand-made ornate gingerbread houses, decorative cards, handmade clothes and handbags, attractive homewares, delightful Christmas biscuits, and much, much more.

We will have a range of children's activities, including some wonderfully creative Christmas craft, an apple and orange peeling competition and a thirty- metre jumping castle!

Food trucks will fill Dean Street with the delicious aromas while desserts will be catered for by the school, with the legendary teacher's crepes back on offer! And who could forget our magnificent Gingerbread Houses, which will be on sale again this year, along with our array of cakes and Christmas biscuits baked by school parents. Our resident Gingerbread House expert, Cath, is happy to train willing parents to bake and put the houses together. It's always a lovely social, creative and fun activity.

Come along and join us for a wonderful night for the whole family.
