Derby Cathedral School is on schedule to open in September 2018 with six Year 7 classes (180 places) and admissions will open on 14th September. We will be organising open events this autumn, ahead of the Year 7 application deadline of 31st October.
In our first year of operation, we will sit outside the Local Authority coordinated admissions process although we will be working closely with colleagues at the LA.
In essence, an application to Derby Cathedral School is a risk-free choice for 2018 as applications are made in addition to the usual Local Authority process. This gives parents/carers a chance they may be offered two places, one from Derby Cathedral School and one through the Local Authority.
