Senior School

We know how important the transition to Senior School is for your daughter’s education and her personal development. Our dedicated and experienced staff will give your daughter the skills and confidence to take her from her first tentative steps in Year 7, to becoming an articulate young woman ready to face the challenges beyond Derby High School.

We strive for high academic achievement but we also encourage our students to look beyond the classroom by taking part in a range of activities outside the classroom, both at home and abroad, all of which offer a different challenge.

We believe strongly in the merits of a single-sex environment and are always struck by how willing our girls are to take on new challenges and involve themselves unselfconsciously in a range of activities, including those traditionally associated with boys.

We would encourage you to arrange a tour of the school so that you can fully appreciate what we have to offer.  Please contact Miss Sue Callaghan, our Registrar, for further information about our admissions process.
