DSG is an Anglican school that was founded in 1874 by Bishop Nathaniel Merriman. The school is located in Worcester St, at the bottom of the West hill of Grahamstown and is adjacent to St. Andrew's College and Rhodes University. Formerly, the girls were allowed little or no contact at all with their brother school, St. Andrew's College. This was changed in the early eighties as the pupils of both schools found themselves being integrated on an educational level.
A family of schools 
Most girls enter the school in grade 4, coming from St. Andrew's Preparatory School. There are about 110 girls from grade 4 to grade 7 (the primary school phase) and 240 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.
A music school and Design and Technology Center are shared with St. Andrew's College.
