Literacy at The Derby High School

Maybe it is because our Headteacher has taught English for so many years, but we think literacy is almost more important than anything else! It is absolutely vital that all students can read and write effectively. For this reason, all teachers see themselves as English teachers. We have an excellent intervention programme for any student needing extra help, an inspirational Literacy Co-ordinator and a highly qualified and enthusiastic full time school librarian. Our library is a rich resource in our school and very well utilised. We run a wide range of programmes to encourage all of our students to read; with great success.
