Thus says the Lord who made the earth, the Lord who formed it to establish it—the Lord is his name: Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”

Jeremiah 33:2-3

Cathedral Links

We are delighted to have strong links with Derby Cathedral across many areas of school.

In previous years, we have regularly welcomed members of the clergy to our school, for example the Very Reverend Dean of Derby and the current Bishop, Bishop Libby. Cathedral staff contribute to our acts of collective worship, especially at key points in the Christian calendar such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter. Now that restrictions allow, we are looking forward to extending our links, including visits in person with the Cathedral community.

In 2020-21, one of our students designed the Christmas card for the Cathedral.

In 2021-22 we will hold our annual Christmas Carol Service in the Cathedral towards the end of December 2021. We also have many musical experiences planned that enable our students to perform in the beautiful Cathedral setting and work with the Cathedral musical director.

Do watch this space for more activities and information as the year progresses.
