Derby Grammar Primary School is for boys in Reception through to Year 6. Once you are ready to apply, all you need to do is initially return your Registration Form and fee to us as early as possible.
Joining Infant School
For younger boys looking to join us in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, we will arrange a convenient time for you to meet with the Head of Primary School, Mrs Sly and will also invite your son to a stay and play session.
Joining Junior School
Boys joining us between Years 3 and 6 are invited him to an assessment day so we get to know them. Importantly it also means they can also get to know us, find their way around School and make new 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 the work that is being done in the current school year. We also spend time observing your son 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 as early as possible in order to gain the maximum benefit from all that the Primary School has to offer, and to secure a guaranteed place in Senior School.
