Derby Grammar School pupils have been busy in December turning their festive celebrations into fundraising activities for Derby and Burton Hospitals Charity(DBHC).

On Sunday 2 December staff and pupils took part in the annual Jingle Jog around Markeaton Park. On Monday 17 December the whole school wore their Christmas jumpers and donated money towards DBHC for the privilege.

A grand total of £529.39 was raised which Year 4 teacher Mrs Jackson presented to the DBHC along with Daniel and Ted from Year 4 who were two of the pupils who took part in the Jingle Jog.

Mrs Jackson leads on the DBHC fundraising for the school and said: “We have been fundraising for our local hospital for a number of years now. The Junior boys particularly enjoy it when Lambie comes in to school to pay them a visit.

We donate our money raised to the children’s wards, and it was wonderful this year for us to visit the hospital and present the money personally to the ward staff and Lambie.”



About Derby Grammar School

Derby Grammar School is Derbyshire’s leading independent day school for boys aged 4 to 18 and girls aged 16 to 18.  Our Primary School, Senior School and co-educational Sixth Form are housed in a stunning setting within our own grounds in Littleover, Derby.

Three principles lie at our core: excellent teaching, incredible opportunities, and a supportive, friendly atmosphere.  These are the things that make us special.  And they are the reasons our pupils come into school each day with a smile, eager to learn and expand their minds.

We strive to ‘bring education to life’. The enthusiasm of our teachers sparks excitement and interest for curious minds. We create an environment where our pupils’ strengths are sought out and celebrated. Our small size enables us to do this; we know and treat each child as an individual.

Academic success can be seen each year in the excellent GCSE and A level results our pupils achieve. But an education at Derby Grammar School goes much deeper.

Our extensive range of extra-curricular activities provide an excellent basis to further develop the personal skills and interests of each of our boys. Activities include clubs, trips, competitions, concerts, plays, visits and sporting fixtures. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is run throughout the school, and our charitable work is central to building the character of our pupils.

Derby Grammar School pupils emerge as confident, knowledgeable and considerate individuals who are ready, willing and more than able to take on life’s challenges – and succeed.
