Our Headteacher Designate Mr Gordon Inglis will be available to meet you and take you through his vision and plan for the Derby Cathedral School.

The Derby Cathedral School is scheduled to open this September in temporary accommodation at Midland House in Nelson Street while the new building is constructed.

Derby Cathedral School is the City’s first Church of England co-educational 11-19 secondary school, including a sixth form. It will deliver a broad and balanced curriculum, with a specialism in Music and Mathematics, encouraging self-confidence and accelerating cognitive development for all learners:

  • Building high levels of personal development, well-being and achievement
  • Providing a warm welcome and a high-quality education to students from families practising all faiths and those with no faith

Inclusivity and high expectations will be integral to our ethos and mission. Derby Cathedral School will also offer a high-quality spiritual, moral, social and cultural education while promoting British values relating to democracy, the rule of law, tolerance and individual liberty.

Please do drop into one of our events, we look forward to seeing you!
