Welcome to Derby High School
At Derby High we put everything in place to support our pupils through the most intense two years of their academic lives so far. By providing excellent teaching and lots of support, friendship and fun we help our Sixth Formers to reach beyond their own personal boundaries: in short, to achieve their true potential. Girls leave Derby High Sixth Form as strong, confident young women, well prepared for the challenges which lie ahead. Sixth Form life here teaches them to embrace new experiences and take responsible risks and gives them the confidence to take on new responsibilities. The happy atmosphere of Derby High Sixth Form is one of the first things you notice when you first step into the common room. We make a real effort to help our Sixth Formers settle into Derby High life. In a recent Leavers' Survey our U6 Leavers were asked to rate their overall Derby High Sixth Form experience. All of them rated their experience as either good (27%) or excellent (73%). Highlights of Sixth Form life at Derby High include the L6 trip to London (incorporating shopping, a trip up the Thames and a West End Show), visits overseas (in recent years to Ethiopia and Nicaragua), the Truly Educated programme and, House Competitions within school.
