Headteacher’s Welcome


Ms C. H. Hubert


We are proud to be a high achieving school that offers so many exciting opportunities for all our students.  The school has high expectations of itself and its students and the teaching and pastoral care available here is exceptional. Students are looked after extremely well whilst also being challenged to achieve their best.

Ofsted 2014 acknowledged the achievements of the school highlighting the outstanding leadership at all levels. Our latest Ofsted short inspection report from 2018 declared: “The school continues to be good”. In a letter addressed to me it stated: “The schools motto, ‘excellence, tradition and imagination’, underpins everything. You and your staff team have created an inclusive and caring community”. Our 2019 exam results showed our Progress 8 score was the highest in Bury (a position we have held for the last three years). These accomplishments are a testament to the talented, hardworking and dedicated staff we have here.

The Derby High School is truly a unique school. Positive relationships between and within staff and students is a key strength and ensure all who work here see school as a happy and caring place in which to learn. Furthermore, the distinctive experiences offered enable our students to leave us as confident, well rounded and forward thinking young people equipped to make an impact in their own and others’ lives. I warmly invite you to come and see what we have to offer.
