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

All applicants are invited to an assessment day so that we can get to know him. Importantly it also means he can get to know us, find his way around School and make some friends.

Whist the name sounds a little formal, it is a very relaxed day. It includes some basic testing on maths, English, verbal reasoning and writing – all of which is relevant to your sons current school year. We also spend time observing him in the classroom and at play. This gives us a ‘whole picture’ and enables your son to relax whilst with us. In fact, a lot of the time he won’t even realise he is taking a test.

We encourage pupils to start 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.
