Throughout their time at Derby Grammar School, we prepare pupils for post-education life and inspire them with the confidence to follow their dreams and aspirations.
Whether our pupils wish to progress into Higher Education or venture into employment, we have dedicated support to help them map out an exciting future.
A vast proportion of our Sixth Form decide to go to university to study a huge range of undergraduate degrees. Our in-house UCAS expert is on hand to help with the application process from writing outstanding personal statements and narrowing down university choices to navigating Clearing.
Derby Grammar School hosts a Next Steps Careers Fair which presents fantastic networking opportunities for our pupils and their parents. Along with top UK universities, local employers are invited to showcase their offering and talk to pupils about possible entry routes into business, including work experience, internships and apprenticeships. This well-attended event and others similar aim to help pupils make informed decisions about their future.
