Opportunities... like no other school

We are proud to offer our students so many unique opportunities. Our teachers go the extra mile and we have built a wide range of hugely exciting partnerships. We want to provide a school experience that is truly memorable … and every single week, something exciting will be happening here at The Derby! Whether playing in the nets at Lord's Cricket ground, dancing with the Royal Birmingham Ballet, making a film with the BBC, listening to a lecture by Dr Brian Cox, being at a dinner with Dr Tim O'Brien, spending a Saturday at a chess competition, dancing at the Lowry Theatre, competing in the Dragon's Den or broadcasting their stories on Radio 4's Listening Project … some of our students somewhere will be doing something extra special!!

We also think it's really important to take our students to university and to give them direct experience of the world of work. We have excellent links with Manchester, Salford and Liverpool Universities with regular visits and exchanges.

Please take a look at our News section to see some of the exciting projects we have been involved in this year, and follow our Twitter account to see what we get up to.
