Senior High Notes 30th September 2022

Here at Derby High it is so true every Friday that we have had a very busy week. Our students astound me with all that they do alongside their studies. I am always so impressed by the willingness and desire from our students to be involved and give their best in everything they do and the dedication from our staff to offer a breadth of opportunities for their pupils. Our celebration assemblies are a wonderful opportunity for us to share so many fantastic achievements and successes in a wide range of academic and co-curricular endeavours. This week I was delighted to be able to present certificates for Music, LAMDA and super-curricular language immersion challenge, along with the U16 Quad Cup Champions in netball and the House Netball Cup.
