The school equips students with skills and qualifications that will enable them to access high-quality careers in and around the city of Derby and beyond. The curriculum offer is broad and balanced and is enhanced by strong links with the Cathedral.

The curriculum and our character values, based on the acronym FAITH, are a key part of the school vision and represent a platform from which we build high levels of personal development, well-being and achievement from Year 7 onwards.

Just on the edge of the beautiful Peak District National Park, Derby is just 15 minutes from the M1 junction 24 and accessible via the A6, A50, A38 and A52. With a variety of family friendly amenities in the City and quick and easy access to the surrounding countryside, Derby is ideally placed and identified as one of the top places to live in the UK.

Our brand-new site within the City Centre provides abundant parking and a new, modern working environment.
