Derby Grammar School is Derbyshire’s leading independent day school for boys aged 7 to 18 and girls aged 16 to 18.  Our Junior School, Senior School and co-educational Sixth Form are housed in a stunning setting within our own grounds in Littleover, Derby.

Where to educate your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. Their school experience will not only help them attain a set of all-important academic results that will influence their future opportunities, but it will shape the person that they grow into.

What makes Derby Grammar School different?

Three principles lie at our core: excellent teaching, incredible opportunities, and a supportive, friendly atmosphere.  These are the things that make us special.  And they are the reasons our pupils come into school each day with a smile, eager to learn and expand their minds.

We strive to ‘bring education to life’. The enthusiasm of our teachers sparks excitement and interest for curious minds. We create an environment where our pupils’ strengths are sought out and celebrated. Our small size enables us to do this; we know and treat each child as an individual.

Academic success can be seen each year in the excellent GCSE and A level results our pupils achieve. But an education at Derby Grammar School goes much deeper.

Our extensive range of extra-curricular activities provide an excellent basis to further develop the personal skills and interests of each of our boys. Activities include clubs, trips, competitions, concerts, plays, visits and sporting fixtures. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is run throughout the school, and our charitable work is central to building the character of our pupils.

Derby Grammar School pupils emerge as confident, knowledgeable and considerate individuals who are ready, willing and more than able to take on life’s challenges – and succeed.
