Welcome to Derby High Primary!

An environment where children love to learn, come into school excited for the challenges ahead of them, have the space to share their creativity and are led by teachers whose enthusiasm for the children they teach is evident from the moment you set foot in the classrooms.  Derby High Primary is a vibrant, fun place to be whilst achieving high academic standards and an excitement for learning.  The school encourages and helps to develop confidence from an early age and offers a wide range of extra curricular activities and events.

Our broad curriculum is explored by the children in a variety of ways; topic work, performances and class assemblies, songs, visits and themed days all help to bring our curriculum to life.  Our academic expectations for our pupils are high, laying the foundations for future success.

Mr Jeremy Harper (Head of Primary) leads a fantastic team of Primary teaching and support staff.  Our small class sizes mean that every child can be given the attention and support that they need.  Our purpose built infant and junior buildings provide the perfect space for learning, creating and investigating.  In addition to the core subjects offered, specialist teachers provide Music, French and PE and from Year 5 onwards, Drama and Science.  

The best way to find out more about Derby High Primary is to come and have a look around, seeing for yourself our children in their learning environment. There are also opportunities for your child to experience a Taster Day, when they would be welcomed into the class they would be joining.
