Associated schools edit
DSG shares close ties with other schools in Grahamstown: St. Andrew's College, a high school for boys and St. Andrew's Preparatory School, a co-educational primary school. Most girls enter the school in grade 4, coming from St. Andrew's Preparatory School. There are about 120 girls from grade 4 to grade 7 (the primary school phase) and 400 from grade 8 to grade 12 (the high school phase.) From grade 10 all the academic classes are shared with St. Andrew's College and are thus co-instructional.
