Open Events & Private Tours

We have made the decision not to hold our usual Open Events during this academic year, due to Covid restrictions and concerns. However, we are instead offering alternative opportunities for families to appreciate the exceptional educational experience offered by Derby High for boys and girls in each and every age group, ranging from age 3 to 18. 

Book a Private Tour

We are happy to offer personal tours throughout the school year, accompanied by our Head, Mrs Amy Chapman. During your tour, you will have the opportunity to visit our Infant School, Junior School, Senior School and Sixth Form. Join us to view all our fantastic facilities, including our design technology suite, art room and gallery, food and nutrition area, music and performance rooms, sports hall and field along with our newly refurbished science laboratories. 

Please note that social distancing must be adhered to at all times whilst on site to protect our school community. 

To register for a private tour please contact our Registrar, Kristy Orpwood via email admissions@derbyhigh.derby.sch.uk, telephone 01332 514267, or via the enquiry form at the bottom of this page. Once you have registered, Kristy Orpwood will contact you to arrange a suitable time for your visit. We look forward to welcoming you to Derby High School.
