About us

Hope Valley College is a comprehensive secondary, situated in the village of Hope in the Peak District. With our highly inclusive ethos, we attract students from across north Derbyshire. Our school is at the heart of the local community, about 11 miles from the city of Sheffield.

We have over 570 students, with a small number within a Post-16 Pathways, area-wide provision comprising mainly foundation learning programmes (incorporating work experience and life skills) for young people with specific learning difficulties or special educational needs. 

Our stunning countryside location means we can offer a wide range of outdoor activities, including our on-site bike trail and numerous local trips. 

On 1 September the school joined Chorus Education Trust, under the leadership of a new Principal, Mrs Gaynor Jones.
