Dumfries High school has, for almost 3 years, had a Gender Sexual Orientation Alliance (GSA) which aims to ensure that the school is a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for all. The GSA committee supervise a safe space that any student can use, there is no need to talk or interact with anyone here. It is a space for you to just be. The space can be found in Lab 11.
As part of the journey to ensure DHS is an inclusive place we have undertaken the journey to obtain the LGBT Youth Scotland Bronze Chartermark
