Derby's Top Performing Senior School

Here at Derby High, we are very proud of the first class education we offer, laying the foundations for success and an excitement for learning. Our examination results can be found here.

We know how important the transition to Senior School is for your son or daughter's education and their personal development. Our dedicated and experienced staff will give your 11 year old the skills and confidence to take them from their first tentative steps in Year 7, to becoming an articulate young adult ready to face the challenges beyond Derby High School.

We also welcome new students in Years 8, 9 and 10 when places become available.

It is always a pleasure to watch new students settling in quickly to our supportive community and making the most of the many opportunities available.

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 would encourage you to arrange a tour of the school by our Head, Mrs Amy Chapman, 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.
