Parents of children in Years 4 and 5 asked to register support for proposed Derby Cathedral School

An application to establish Derby Cathedral School, the City’s first Church of England 11-19 secondary school, will be submitted to the Department for Education in March 2016. Parents, especially those of children currently in Years 4 and 5, are being asked to show their support for this proposal.

If approved, the school will be fully inclusive and free to attend, welcoming pupils of all abilities, from all backgrounds, of all faiths and none.

The school plans to open in the DE1 postcode area, in the vicinity of Derby Cathedral, in September 2017. Initially opening with four Year 7 classes (120 places), it will admit the same number of Year 7 pupils each year thereafter, reaching full capacity of 840 pupils when the first students reach Year 13 in 2023.

The school will offer a broad and balanced curriculum taught by qualified teachers. Its specialism in Music and Mathematics will be enhanced by strong links with the well-respected Cathedral Choir and Music Department and students will also benefit from an extended school day, excellent pastoral care and a wide range of enrichment opportunities. As Derby’s regeneration framework moves the city towards becoming the UK’s hi-tech industries capital, the school will equip students with the skills and qualifications to enable them to access high quality careers in and around the City.

Derby Cathedral School will be governed by an Academy Trust, and is a joint venture between the Derby Diocesan Academy Trust (DDAT) and Derby Cathedral.

To show your support for Derby Cathedral School, please go to the website, , click on the ‘Register’ tab and complete the short form. You can also follow the school on Facebook.

Derby Cathedral School of Prayer

After Christmas, Derby Cathedral is running a School of Prayer. This is your invitation to find out more.

The School of Prayer is for anyone who would like to learn about Christian prayer. The eight-week course introduces different ways of praying for people to try, and looks at questions about prayer. It runs on Monday evenings in the Cathedral Cafe, 7.15 - 9.00 pm, 22 February - 14 March 2016.

Who is the God who meets us in prayer? How can we pray, with words and without any words? How can we pray every day? Why do we pray for other people, and with other people? What does the Bible say about prayer? How does prayer fit with the rest of your life?

You don't have to be a Christian or a church member to take part in the School and it’s free of charge. We'll meet from 7.15 pm with tea or coffee and start the course at 7.30 pm. There'll be a mix of talks, practice, praying and discussion. Each evening ends with prayer together.
