We are so excited to be opening our doors to welcome visitors to our first on-site Open Day this academic year. With COVID restrictions easing, we are delighted to be able to show off our fantastic school.

To comply with COVID guidelines, places at our Open Day are limited and appointments must be booked. Bookings can be made here.

During your visit you will tour our brilliant facilities with a member of staff. Families interested in our Primary School will also tour through our warm and welcoming Primary School.

At Derby Grammar School, three principles lie at our core: Excellent, Encouragement, Enrichment. Derby Grammar School is much more than a place to study. It is a place for excitement, friendship, curiosity, discovery and achievement. We bring education to life, and our pupils leave us confident and well-prepared for the next stage in their journey.

Our small size enables us to get to know each pupil as an individual and support them throughout their time with us, wherever their talents lie. We offer individual support so each pupil develops academically and as a person, including subject and careers guidance, as well as support in university application, including Oxbridge.

Charitable causes include Tanzania Project which is a major focus of Lower Sixth. This develops entrepreneurial spirit as pupils are responsible for funding their own trip, which exposes them to a completely different culture and way of life. This is a humbling, character-building experience which makes them appreciate and value what they have.

Our small size and individual approach means that each pupil is supported to achieve their very best, and we are celebrating fantastic academic results:

  • ​39% of A Level grades are A* and A
  • ​76% of all GCSE grades are 9, 8 or 7
