School life at Derby Grammar School is welcoming, fulfilling and inspiring.

We create an environment that stimulates curious minds, that celebrates each pupil’s strengths, and where we know and treat each child as an individual.

Bringing education to life

Learning at Derby Grammar School extends far beyond the academic curriculum. Our pupils enjoy a vast range of extra-curricular activities, from archery club and formula 24 car racing, music tours and sports matches, to overseas trips such as the annual expedition to Tanzania – which also includes climbing Mount Kilimanjaro or taking part in a safari on the Tanzanian plains.

Extra-curricular activities enhance classroom learning and enable individual talent to flourish. They encourage confidence, leadership and entrepreneurship. All are qualities our pupils are renowned for and which prepare them for life after school.

School life is busy. There’s never a dull moment with a packed school calendar that includes sports fixtures and careers talks, charity events, concerts and fun-filled fêtes.
