All co-curricular activities at Derby Grammar School are encouraged, but completely optional. Our School House system is in place so that pupils who choose not to participate in other aspects of school life can still experience the benefits and joys of being part of a team. Activities are fun, light-hearted and informal, and play to a range of skills meaning everyone can get involved.
Upon joining Derby Grammar School, pupils are automatically assigned to one of our four School Houses; Atkinson, Bemrose, Blackton or Derby. House captains are nominated for the Senior School and Primary School and are responsible for leading their houses to potential victory.
Throughout the academic year, the School Houses then battle to score points in cross country, drama, chess, essay writing, swimming and much more. At the end of the year, the winning house with the most points will bring home their treasured trophy.
