Ockbrook School
The Settlement, Derby,DE72 3RJ Ockbrook

Developing the whole person is at the heart of everything we do at Ockbrook School. From the first steps in the School at Nursery or Primary level, through to Sixth Form, we focus on developing our pupils’ skills for life, as well as their academic ability.

Around the School we pride ourselves on the happy atmosphere that touches everyone. It is a calm, relaxed learning environment in which friendships flourish and pupils achieve.

We are proud of our history as one of the oldest and longest achieving girls’ schools in the UK. We were established in 1799 and still maintain a Christian ethos whilst welcoming pupils from all faiths.

Our exemplary Independent School's Inspectorate Inspection in February 2006 reflects the commitment we all share in the pursuit of excellence at all levels within the School. It is a testimony to the dedication and hard work of everyone involved in the School – from my teaching and support staff, to students, parents and governors. It also reflects the success we have enjoyed in developing the whole School, from Nursery and Primary provision, all the way through to our expanded Sixth Form and high achieving Senior Department.

We hope you will join us and experience the confidence and achievements that express best the spirit of Ockbrook School.

Alison Steele
Head Teacher


Ockbrook School is an independent school for girls aged 3-18 and boys aged 3-11. Admission is mainly at ages 3, 5, 11 and 16 years.

Prospective pupils aged 5-10 years are invited to spend at least one session in School working alongside pupils of their own age group, as part of the assessment process. Prospective pupils aged 11-16 years are required to sit the School’s Entrance Examination. Year 7 (age 11) and Sixth Form Entrance Examinations take place each year in January.

If you and your child are interested in experiencing the spirit of Ockbrook School, we have an annual Open Day in the Autumn Term when you are invited to visit and see the day-to-day life at the School. You can also arrange to visit the School and meet the Head Teacher at other times by contacting the School’s Admissions Secretary on 01332 673532 or by email -
