Introduction

 

Derby High School is an independent, co-ed day school located in the suburb of Littleover in Derby. Established in 1892, the school produces excellent examination results. [1]

 

The academic provision is broad and balanced, characterised by small class sizes and grounded in the efforts to meet the individual needs and interests of pupils. Alongside lessons for the core academic subjects, specialist teaching is provided for music, French and PE. 

 

A wide selection of after-class activities is on offer, ranging from choir, computing, theatre club and chess to craft club, science club, football and cookery. Residential visits are arranged all throughout the academic year, including destinations such as Boreatton Park, Shropshire and Chasewater, Staffordshire. Enriching the activities programme and the overall educational experience, these trips allow children to grow in independence, resilience and confidence. 

 

Music at Derby High plays a vital role in children’s education. Hence, pupils develop high levels of skills and frequently perform in concerts as part of the choir, Junior band and theatre clubs. They also get to take part in musical competitions as both individuals and as part of a group. [2]

 

The latest ISI inspection for the school concluded that Derby High fully meets all national standards for educational provision and actively invests in the intellectual, social, physical and spiritual development of children, allowing them to access further education with the skills to succeed.
