About the virtual Open Morning

Find out why our School is much more than a place to study at our virtual Open Morning.

Enjoy a  virtual tour of the school and facilities, including the main school site and Rykneld Sports Centre and hear from key members of staff and one of the school’s governors who will talk about the
quality of education on offer and give a view as an ex-parent.

Head teacher, Dr Ruth Norris, will hold a live chat to discuss the ethos of Derby Grammar School, the admissions process, fees and the scholarships that are on offer.  She will also talk about the new primary building that is being constructed at the school, in Littleover.

You will then have the opportunity to take part in a live question and answer webinar-style session
with Dr Norris and the Head of Primary School, April Sly. Also taking part will be the Senior
Leadership Team including; Head of Pastoral Care, Deputy Heads, Head of Sixth Form, Bursar,
Director of Co-Curricular and Admissions.

You will be able to type questions and the school team will read and respond during the live chat.

Did you know:

  • 32% of all A Level passes were at A*/ A in 2019
  • 52% of GCSE passes were at grade 9, 8 or 7 in 2019
  • Junior School pupils don’t do SATS tests – we work closely with each and always know the level each boy is working at
  • We took our first infant pupils last September and our brand new Infant School building opens at Easter
  • We keep our class sizes small, which means we identify and celebrate pupil’s strengths, and support each to achieve their potential
  • Our co-curricular activities are extensive, offering each pupil incredible opportunities from Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme to archery and Formula 24 car racing, through to supporting, and visiting, Gedeli B School in Tanzania
  • We have an wide range of scholarships and bursaries which recognise and reward talent, wherever it lies.

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.
