Derby High is an independent day school based on the outskirts of Derby.
Our friendly, happy Primary School welcomes girls and boys aged between 3 and 11 whilst our busy, ambitious Senior School currently educates girls only up to age 18. We are delighted to announce that from September 2019 we will welcome boys into the Senior School at Year 7 and Year 12 (Lower Sixth).
Our Sixth Form welcomes both Derby High students and those who have completed their GCSE studies elsewhere.
About the school
The top performing school in the Derby area at both GCSE and A Level, Derby High as a very strong record for academic success.
Our small class sizes enable each child to progress at their own speed, with the support and challenge of exceptionally well qualified teachers.
We take pride in our excellent pastoral care throughout all stages in the school, with pupils feeling confident they are listened to and looked after.
Each lunchtime and after school, we offer a wide variety of clubs and activities and we encourage all our pupils to try something new each term, as well as continue to develop skills in areas they have grown to love. Our many and varied trips and residential experiences ensure each child is encouraged to expand their boundaries within a safe and secure environment.
Our thriving Primary School educates boys and girls from age 3 (pre-school) to Year 6. The move to co-education in our Senior School will mean that our Primary boys are able to continue their education at Derby High right up until they complete their A Levels at age 18.
