Inspired to Make a Difference

Friends of The Derby


Dear Parents, Carers, School Staff, Alumni and Community Friends,

All parents and members of the school community can get involved in Friends of The Derby. All parents are automatically members when their children join our school.

‘Friends of The Derby’ exists to provide closer links between home, school and our local community. It is a fun way to bring staff, parents, community friends, alumni and students together in support of a common goal.

Currently, our efforts are focused on raising money to purchase a new school minibus that we desperately need in order to continue with our community engagement and extensive student enrichment programme.

If you would like further information, please contact Lynn Provoost, Assistant Headteacher and ‘Friends of The Derby’ link:

Friends of The Derby plays a vital part in the school community. This is your chance to hear and see how the funds you have helped to raise have been used for the benefit of the students at our school.

As a school we value all the effort and hard work of Friends of The Derby to raise money for the school’s benefit.
