Our extensive range of After School Sports’ Clubs offer dedicated sport clubs to all year groups. 

To complement fixtures taking place in our games afternoon, our students have the opportunities to play competitively in house events throughout the year.

Derby High School is a part of the Independent Association of Prep Schools, who host a wide range of sporting festivals. This is a great opportunity for our higher performers to compete against other independent schools.

My child is always so proud to represent his school in a fixture!
