Truly Educated

The school runs a unique and innovative programme called Truly Educated, which is designed to give students a broader education and equip them with real life skills in preparation for their lives beyond Derby High.

Cooking on a budget, car maintenance, networking, assembling flat-pack furniture and learning how to manage finances are just some of the activities on offer.

All members of the Upper Sixth take part in the course which sees them work towards an in-house certificate.
