Vision & Values
Derby High School prides itself on its friendliness, and visitors to the school invariably comment on the calm and happy atmosphere in the school and the excellent relationships between the children and the staff.
One of the great strengths of the school is its broad social and cultural intake.
The school has a Christian foundation in the Anglican tradition, but our school community includes those of all faiths and none and while our values maintain our Christian tradition, we seek to learn from and celebrate the diversity of cultures and beliefs within the school.
Derby High was awarded the highest possible ‘Excellent’ rating following a full inspection from the Independent Schools Inspectorate in January 2023. Being a member of The Heads’ Conference (HMC), a prestigious association of leading independent schools in the UK and around the world, recognises our commitment to academic excellence, innovation in education, and a dedication to providing our students with the best possible educational experience.
