Derby Grammar School

Derby Grammar School is Derbyshire’s leading independent day school for boys aged 7 to 18 and girls aged 16 to 18. Three principles lie at our core: excellent teaching, incredible opportunities, and a supportive, friendly atmosphere. These are the things that make us special. And they are the reasons our pupils come into school each day with a smile, each day with a smile, eager to learn and expand their minds. We strive to ‘bring education to life’.
