Full of energy and enthusiasm, there’s always something fun and exciting happening at Derby Grammar Junior School.
As an all boys’ environment, teaching is tailored specifically to the needs of boys in years 3 to 6. We harness their natural inquisitiveness, engage their interests, stimulate their curiosity, build on their individual skills and foster a love of learning.
The Junior School is housed in its own custom-built area within the main school building. It is small and friendly, with class sizes of up to 20 in each year group.
Boys are happy, comfortable and confident in their learning environment and enjoy a wide range of activities and opportunities, both academic and in the wider curriculum.
Each benefits from firm foundations in English, maths, science, PSHE and humanities whilst also enjoying regular lessons in art, music, sport, drama, design and technology – utilising the close relationship with the Senior School and making the most of the excellent facilities that this offers. Junior School pupils have the added advantage of a smooth transition into the Senior School at Year 7.
Inspirational teaching encourages imaginative thinkers who are eager for new challenges. And with the needs of each pupil firmly in focus, all children are valued and encouraged wherever their talents lie.
