Looking after our students

Derby High School prides itself on the level of pastoral care offered to our students, who are encouraged to seek the advice and help of their teachers if they are experiencing difficulties. We also encourage parents to inform the school if there is anything happening outside school which might have an impact on the well-being of their children. Experience tells us that good communication between parents and the school is the most effective way of enabling the school to offer students appropriate guidance and support, whether through Form Tutors, Heads of Key Stage, our full-time Chaplain or other staff with pastoral responsibilities.
