Experience days

These are special days giving prospective pupils, and families, a taste of life in Year 7 or Sixth Form at Derby Grammar School. These days are open to all.

We are delighted to have been able to offer a Year 7 Experience Day earlier this year, and we are looking forward to our Sixth Form Experience Morning in June. Due to the current restrictions, we are pleased to say we are also able to offer Taster Days for any year group for those who are registered. Please see below.

Personal visits

While open events and experience days provide an excellent introduction to the School, we also welcome prospective parents to visit us at any time for a personal meeting with Dr Norris (Head), Mrs Scholter (Head of Primary School) or Miss Stebbings (Head of Sixth Form) to discuss the individual needs of your child and address any questions you may have.

      • Contact us to arrange a personal visit using the form below.

Taster days

We can arrange a special taster day for prospective pupils where they will buddy-up with a current pupil and take part in lessons and activities that are part of the normal school day. It’s a great opportunity to spend time with the relevant year group, start to make friends, get to know the way around School, meet teachers and see how the school day runs.
