As a parent of a child at Derby Grammar School, you automatically become a member of our PTA.

An excellent way to bring together parents and teachers to raise money for the school, the PTA provides an opportunity for everyone to work together towards a common goal.  Each year we raise significant funds. Projects are varied and have included:

  • the refurbishment of the summerhouse in to a gym for Sixth Form
  • funding of a bike shelter
