Derby Cathedral School plans to open in September 2018 with six Year 7 classes (180 places) and admit the same number of Year 7 pupils each year thereafter. It will be a Church of England secondary school and will be fully inclusive and free to attend, welcoming pupils of all abilities, from all backgrounds, of all faiths and those with no faith.
The local authority will process applications outside the normal local authority process for coordinating school offers. This means you will need to complete your LA common application form for your other choices of school in addition to a separate application for Derby Cathedral School.
Admissions will open in September 2017 and applicants offered a place at Derby Cathedral School on 1st March 2018 will also receive an offer of an additional school. It is, in effect, an additional choice of school.
