About the School:
The Grammar School is Derbyshire’s leading independent day school for boys aged 4 to 18 and girls aged 16 to 18.
Established in 1995, our Primary School, Senior School and Sixth Form are housed in a stunning setting within our own grounds in Littleover, Derby.
Three principles lie at our core: excellence, enrichment and encouragement. We provide superb teaching, incredible opportunities and a supportive, friendly atmosphere. These are the things that make us special. They are the reasons our pupils come into school each day with a smile, eager to learn and expand their minds.
We strive to ‘bring education to life’ and inspire a passion for learning that remains with our pupils throughout their lives. The enthusiasm of our teacher’s sparks excitement and interest for curious minds. We create an environment where our pupils’ strengths are sought out and celebrated. Our small size enables us to do this; we know and treat each child as an individual.
Our catchment area is local, extending up to 20 miles from Littleover. We have grown steadily since we began back in 1995 and now have a roll of 233, with an intention to increase to 300.
What strikes most visitors to our School is our warm and friendly environment which fosters an ambition to learn, to contribute and take part. It results in pupils who emerge as confident, knowledgeable and considerate individuals who are ready, willing and more than able to take on life’s challenges - and succeed.
