Derby Grammar Junior School is for boys in Year 3 through to Year 6.

Whilst we require an entrance assessment for Junior School pupils to ensure our admissions criteria is met, the testing is less formal and is age-appropriate. We also ask for a report from your child’s current school.

We invite your son to join the School for the day, making the transition enjoyable and minimising any anxiety he may have. It’s also an opportunity for him to make friends, get to know teachers and his way around the school.

We encourage you to start your son in Year 3 in order to gain maximum benefit from all that the Junior School has to offer. However, entry is also possible into Years 4, 5 and 6.
