- A clear ethos and support in dealing with the challenges that our students and parents face particularly with regards to behaviour

- Accredited qualification routes including construction and horticulture

Normal area map

The normal area of a school is the geographic area which it serves and the school area you fall into is based on your permanent home address. Most Derbyshire schools serve a specific area but in some cases you might live in an area for more than one school. You can find more information about your normal area school on the Derbyshire County Council website.
