Headteacher’s Welcome

We are proud to be a high achieving school that offers so many exciting opportunities for all our students.  The school has high expectations of itself and its students and the teaching and pastoral care available here is exceptional. Students are looked after extremely well whilst also being challenged to achieve their best.

In 2013 The Derby High School became the only school in the UK to win two national awards for educational excellence at the TES School Awards in London.  Ofsted 2014 acknowledged the achievements of the school highlighting the outstanding leadership at all levels. In June 2015 we received an Educational Outcomes Award from the SSAT for being in the top 20% of schools nationally for student progress at GCSE.  These accomplishments are a testament to the talented, hardworking and dedicated staff we have here.

The Derby High School is truly a unique school. Positive relationships between and within staff and students is a key strength and ensure all who work here see school as a happy and caring place in which to learn. Furthermore, the distinctive experiences offered enable our students to leave us as confident, well rounded and forward thinking young people equipped to make an impact in their own and others’ lives. I warmly invite you to come and see what we have to offer.

Ms C H Hubert, Headteacher
