About us

A comprehensive secondary school in the beautiful Peak District, with GCSE results in the top 5 of Derbyshire.

We know each of our 570 students by name, so can provide the expert teaching and support they deserve.

We are deeply ambitious for our students, combining a broad and balanced curriculum with an inclusive ethos - all within a stunning countryside location. 

We joined Chorus Education Trust in 2019 and welcomed a new Principal, Mrs Gaynor Jones. Our students now have priority access into the best performing Sixth Form in Sheffield at Silverdale School - just one of the many benefits that has come from joining Chorus.

We also have a small Post-16 Pathways, area-wide provision for young people with specific learning difficulties or special educational needs. 

We attract students from across Derbyshire and our stunning countryside location means we can offer a wide range of outdoor activities, including our on-site bike trail and numerous local trips. Find out more about joining our school here.
