Derby High School Netball
Sports Day at Derby High School


Sport for All

Derby High School's approach to Physical Education is in line with the school's belief in education in its broadest sense.

We believe that every girl and boy should experience the joy, challenge and satisfaction of taking part in physical activity and our aim is to enable all students to have a rewarding and enjoyable experience of sport in the school.

The whole sports programme aims to provide an environment in which every girl and boy gains a positive experience. Within this, there are opportunities for students to play regular competitive sport, either in clubs, for their House or the school. Those with outstanding ability are encouraged to attain the highest possible levels through county, regional and even national representation.

Sports participated in at Derby High include: netball, gymnastics, hockey, rounders, basketball, dance, trampolining, volleyball, football, cricket, tag rugby, athletics, badminton and general fitness. The school has excellent on-site facilities and experienced, well qualified staff.     

Pupils show a balanced and mature understanding of the fundamental aspects of staying physically and mentally healthy.
