About Belper School

Belper School is an established, successful and over-subscribed 11-18 school for students of all abilities; it serves the town of Belper and its surrounding areas. It has been a Technology College since 1994.The School works hard in creating the potential for success for all its students. Expectations are high and our good public examination results are a testament to this. The school achieves its success by a combination of strong support for every student, a clear focus on high quality teaching leading to effective learning and open communication between school and home. It has consistently high results and strong sense of community, as well as improved resources and facilities.


The school was created in 1973 from an amalgamation of an existing grammar school and two secondary modern schools. It was originally a 13-18 high school and took shape in a barely complete largely open-plan new building with the combined staffs of the three schools and a charismatic, innovative headteacher: the result was an exciting but difficult first few years.

In 1986, the school merged with its two feeder middle schools to become Belper School, an 11-18 school based on two sites, later reduced to one. In 1994 it became one of the first group of Technology Colleges and remains so today. Support from Thorntons and other local firms has helped the school remodel most of its accommodation to suit an 11-18 school population and the demands of specialist school status. It continues to expand in numbers and a new sixth form block and laboratories were added in 2002.
