Education

Derby and Derbyshire both provide excellent choices of local authority and private schools along with a wide range of highly regarded independent schools, and the city also benefits from cutting edge higher and further education institutions. 

Derby’s commitment starts at pre-school and nursery where it is one of the leading UK authorities in innovative programmes for this age group.

Derbyshire features a great range of top schools including Derby Grammar School, the number one county rated Repton School and neighbouring Derby High School which continues to be featured in The Telegraph’s Top 100. 

Schools for all ages continue to deliver the most dramatic and sustainable improvements in pupil performance and attainment in the UK.

The city also features Derby College, which has over 15,000 students, and the thriving and modern University of Derby, featured in the Top 50 of The Guardian University Guide 2015, which offers a wide range of high quality education and is proud that 96.7% of graduates are in work or further study six months after graduating.
